A little country walk to see Grayson Perry’s House for Essex (or Julie’s House). It’s quite a remarkable building to see, just nestled in the countryside, overlooking the River Stour.
Perry grew up in Essex, and started his education in art at Braintree College where he did an Art Foundation course - the same course that I studied there some years later (still one of my favourite years of my art education).
‘When Living Architecture offered me the opportunity to collaborate with FAT it was a golden chance to realise a long held ambition to build a secular chapel’, said Perry. ‘The resulting building is a total art work, a fiction in which you can live, a digital age shrine and a homage to my home county.’
His ‘House for Essex’ is an ode to his fictional Essex everywoman - Julie Cope. ‘An everyday story of one woman’s life growing up and living in Essex...Julie’s House is a tribute to the county in which it sits and an allegory of what it is like to live here...a musing on religion, local history, feminism, happiness and death’
You can see the interior and stay at The House for Essex by entering the Living Architecture ballot, but the view from the outside with the accompanying views of the River Stour are worth the trip alone.

Grays' State Cinema opened in 1938 with The Hurricane, closing with the same film in 1988.
It seats 2200 and retains its art deco interior and a Compton Organ that featured in Dennis Potter's Lipstick on Your Collar. It's one of only a handful of cinema organs still in its original location.
The building appeared in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Jamiroquai's Deeper Underground video and the Jericho TV series.
Owner JD Wetherspoon plans to restore it with a £3m investment and bring the winds of change. #graysstatecinema #grays #thurrock #artdecocinema #1930scinema #essexarchitecture #artdecoarchitecture #frederickchancellor
