Hylands House and St MIchael and All Angels Church, Galleywood

For today’s BYGONES feature Margaret Mills, looked at a local benefactor, and one time owner of Hylands House in Chelmsford.

The man in question was ARTHUR PRIOR who donated a large sum of money for the construction of a number of churches, one of which was ST MICHAEL AND ALL ANGELS in GALLEYWOOD. Unfortunately Mr Prior, who was guest of honour for the first service held at the church, was so outraged by the sermon on the subject of purgatory, that he refused to visit that church ever again.

Listen again here to what Margaret told me today: –

See you again next week,
