Did you know that St Botolph’s Church in Hadstock has the oldest door in England? It’s about 1000 years old! Set in a typical Saxon arch the door is of plain planking with iron hinges. The church was very possibly ordered to be built by Canute after his 1016 victory over Edmund Ironside at Assandun or Ashingdon .
