Virley Church, sketched by Mr Joseph Sim Earle of London, 3 May 1881.

From "Baring-Gould and Mehalah", an article by E. Farrer in East Anglian Daily Times, thought to be January 1924. [ EADT_1924_JAN ]

In Baring Gould's novel, Mehalah and Elijah Rebow were married in Virley Church.

Virley Church was declared unsafe in 1879 and in 1884 the Earthquake did further serious damage to it so the roof was removed and the walls allowed to stand in a ruinous condition.


Date: 3 May 1881
