St Mary the Virgin is an Evangelical Anglican parish church situated at the western end of the village. There is evidence to suggest that there has been a church on this site since Saxon times and part of the current building certainly dates from the 12th century.

Today, over 800 years on, it is active, thriving and growing and is very much an integral part of village life.

The following are photographs of the last remaining church in the village.

Should you wish to find out more about the history of the church it is available in an excellent publication at Saffron Walden Library called ‘Henham Church and its Congregation’ by Joyce M. Winmill.
