Terling is a small village just north-east of Chelmsford. Close to the cluster of houses lies Terling Place, home of the Stutt family for over 300 years. The Strutts have the family title of Baron Rayleigh of Terling Place. The most famous Lord Rayleigh was John William Strutt, the third Baron who was an eminent scientist, and won the Nobel Prize in 1904 for his discovery of Argon. Terling Place is only visible from the road to the east, and remains in the hands of the Strutt family. It is not open to the public. The church and green lie just to the north of the house. The church has a rather plain interior, but houses a number of monuments to the Strutts, and has a separate entrance and gate leading to the house.
