Great Munden Church

Writing shortly before the Second World War  Arthur Mee described the village "It is little more than a farm, a duck pond, a cottage and a church. The cottage is a frail-looking wooden one, yet it has lasted 300 years, as long as High Trees Farm, which has 17th century stacks and a heavy screen carved in Cromwell's day." He then goes on to describe the church.
