Did you know that the oldest wooden church in the world is St Andrew’s at Greensted-Juxta-Ongar, near Chipping Ongar? Its nave has split-log walls which are at least 900 years old, and possibly more. The great oak logs were from Epping Forest, now about 10 miles away but in medieval times more extensive and thus closer.
