This is the famous leaning St Mary the Virgin Church in Little Wakering, Essex. You may think this not a suitable subject for a portrait photographer and you’d probably be right. But sometimes I like to do a personal project that is outside my usual field. Being temporarily in Southend-on-Sea I’m taking advantage of the fact and shooting things that interest me outside of people.
The lean of this church is greater than that of the tower in Pisa and yet it isn’t anywhere near as famous which is an oddity. The tower was built in 1416 and that is about all I know of it’s history.
