Foreword

The first part of this edition of the history of St. Michael’s, Myland, Parish Church is substantially the same as that published in May 1955 to commemorate the Centenary of the building of the Church on its present site. A few minor alterations have been made to the text and the final pages have been added to bring the story up to the "present day".

I am very grateful to Canon Bolsin for his help in preparing the last chapters; to Mr. Mark Davies, Deputy Curator of the Colchester & Essex Museum, for information with regard to the uncovering of the foundations of the Old Myland Church; and to all those people who, by their encouragement and support, have made this publication possible.
