St Mary the Virgin in Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex
This medieval church, with parts dating from the 1100s, stands next to the grounds of Stansted Hall. The setting is peaceful despite the convenience of the nearby motorway and airport. It contains two exceptional seventeenth-century tomb figures, those of wasp-waisted Hester Salusbury in her hunting clothes and her father Sir Thomas Middleton.
