Yes..there IS one at Wix! I was there about 3 wks ago....huge cage encasing
a huge bell. Well worth going to see

The only thing disappointing about Wix's lovely churchyard was the state of
the farther reaches of it away from the church building itself...I got
completely caught up in nettles and brambles and underfoot was very
dicey...very sad for such a lovely church.

It is a wooden bell cage to house the one bell. Built, they think, in the
17th or 18th century.
I think there's another one at Wix?

On the 'Essex images' picture site, there's a photo of Wrabness graveyard
which shows a sort of wooden cage in between the graves. Would anyone know
what it is - an unusual tomb cover?
I've never seen one like this.
