Before the Norman accession it belonged to the cathedral of St Paul. The London, Tilbury and Southend Railway Companys new line from Barking to Pitsea passes through the parish. The church of St Peter, is a plain building of brick with stone dressings standing at a considerable distance from the village, and consists of chancel and nave, with a western tower containing 1 small bell: in the chancel are two marble monuments with canopies to Dorothy wife Sir Denner Strutt, lord of this manor, who died 1641; to Sir Denner Street, without date and a second to Dame Mary Strutt, who died in 1654. The registry dates from the year 1539. The living is a rectory, yearly value 287 10s, with residence and 37 acres of glebe, in the gift of David Roberts esq, and held by the Rev Henry Jones Henry MA of St Johns College, Cambridge.

On the common there are barracks for the training of recruits for the depot of the Essex regiment; these are capable of containing about fifteen hundred men: adjoining is a garrison chapel of which the Rev John Arden Bayley MA, of Oriel College, Oxford, is the chaplain.
