Meesden (7 miles N.E.) is a pretty parish bounded on the east and north by Essex and only about 2 miles from the Cambridgeshire border. The cottages stretch along a green towards the hamlet of Lower Green. The ancient church, built of flints, has a Jacobean porch. The floor tiles in the chancel form a very rare feature in this county: they are some 600 years old.
