The Church of St Barnabas was built before the 2nd world war. It was slightly damaged when the flying bomb fell in Church Road - about three houses away from the Rectory. I attended the church and belonged to the Cub group there.


Thanks for this comment. From the church's web-site, an editor found: ' The Church of St Barnabas Hadleigh began as daughter church of the ancient Parish Church of St James the Less, Hadleigh. A ‘Mission Church’ designed to be eventually the church hall was dedicated on 1st October 1935. 

The building was damaged during the second World War, but was restored and re-opened on 19th January 1946. Subsequently, a permanent church was built; it was commissioned on 29th January 1958. The chancel and tower were completed in1961 and dedicated by the Bishop of Chelmsford on 12th September. '
