Messing - All Saints
The chancel is 13th century and the nave 14th century. Both are built out of stone, rubble and Roman bricks. The interior of the church was extensively remodelled in the 19th century at which time all the windows were replaced albeit in medieval style. The tower was built in around 1840 and has 3 tiers, built of red brick with stone dressings and buttresses. The south chapel and vestry are of red brick, with red plain tile roof, circa 1840. The roof of the nave is 15th century. Messing is the familial home of 2 US Presidents: Reynold Bush left Messing in 1631 for the New World; and his decendants include George and George W. Bush.
