Eastwick, a small village and parish, was in the same hundred as Stanstead (Braughin) and is three miles from that place on the road to Sawbridgeworth. The neat church here is reported to contain a monument to the memory of a knight templar, which has been frequently noticed by antiquaries (I could not find it when I visited). St Botolps, Eastwick, is a small church with nave, chancel, north vestry and west tower and the windows indicate Norman or earlier origins. The walling is un-coursed knapped flint with heavy flush pointing, but the church is otherwise of a neat and well-kept appearance.

At the present time, I have been unable to trace any more information and when I visited on 16 January 2002 the church was locked and no key directions found. I have since been given instructions to gain access and will revisit as soon as possible.
