IMPORTANT NOTE: Canon Allen’s history of Layer de la Haye Church has been out of print for many years. As there is little or no prospect of it being re-printed it is being made available on the internet, free of charge, for the purposes of private study and research only. It is not to be reproduced in any form, either directly or indirectly, for any commercial purpose without permission of the copyright holders. This document contains only the text of the Second Edition of the booklet. The two photographs of the church, one inside and one outside, which appear in the actual booklet are not included here. A third edition of the booklet was published in 1978.
Some notes have been added, in italics, giving relevant new information which has become available and referring to changes which have taken place since the history was written. These are not, nor intended to be, comprehensive.
