In 1705 the house of William Brock at Navestock
was licensed for nonconformist worship. (fn. 70)
In 1816 a house at Navestock occupied by Charles
Goodwin was similarly licensed. (fn. 71) In 1829 this congregation, numbering 30, was still meeting in a licensed
room, under the leadership of William Temple,
minister of the Congregational church at Stanford
Rivers (q.v.). (fn. 72) No later trace has been found of this
society. It seems probable, however, that there was a
nonconformist chapel later in the 19th century, and
that this was the building at Horseman Side now known
as the Navestock Mission Room. This is a small
rectangular building of gault brick with an entrance
and porch, and is dated 1897. It is said to have been
built as a nonconformist chapel but the services lapsed.
The building is now in private ownership and is used
as a Sunday school and chapel of ease to the parish
church. (fn. 73)
