St Mary's church
|Maldon and East Chelmsford|
Mundon is a village and parish on the Dengie peninsula of Essex. It lies three miles south-east of Maldon. The manor of Munduna passed from the king's thegn Godwin to Eudo Dapifer at the Norman Conquest.
Until the Dissolution of the Monasteries Mundon formed part of the estates of St John's Abbey, Colchester; it passed to Thomas Cromwell before being returned to the Duchy of Lancaster, which held the right of presentation to the vicarage until the 20th century.
The 14th-century timber-framed Church of St Mary, built within the remains of the moat of Mundon Hall, and likely on Saxon and Norman foundations, has been disused since the 1970s, but is currently in the care of Friends of Friendless Churches, supported by English Heritage. Following a long period of remedial work, the church once again re-opened to visitors in August 2009. The entire church was underpinned, and much structural work was carried out by Bakers of Danbury. The church was re-glazed, and now, internally, appears lighter than it has in recent years. It is a grade I listed building.
Mundon Hall is now represented by an 18th-century farmhouse of rendered and whitewashed brick.
The Furze is one of the last areas of surviving ancient woodland in the Dengie peninsula. The dominant tree species are oak and ash. Pedunculate Oak (Quercus robur) dominates the northern half of the Furze. Bramble (Rubus fruticosus) covers most of the ground layer, with small wet areas supporting Pendulous Sedge (Carex pendula) and Soft rush (Juncus effusus).
Several houses have been built in the southern part of this ancient wood.
