Horndon-on-the-Hill is a village and Church of England parish in the unitary authority of Thurrock, in the county of Essex, England. It is located close to the A13, around one mile northwest of Stanford-le-Hope and around two miles northeast of Orsett.Horndon-on-the-Hill has one church, the Church of St Peter and St Paul, which dates from the 13th century and is Grade I listed. It also has a primary school, a recreational park and two public houses, The Swan and The Bell.The village is said to be haunted. Ghostly figures have been reported walking through pathways at night and a few locals have reported seeing a ghostly shadow of a woman by the footbridge at South hill.HistoryHorndon-on-the-Hill appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Horninduna, meaning "horn-shaped hill". It may have been the site of the 11th-century Horndon mint, based on the survival of a single Anglo-Saxon penny from the village.A woolmarket was established in the village in the early 16th century; the building later became a shelter for the poor people of the area.On the south wall of the church is a memorial to Thomas Higbed, who was burned at the stake in Horndon in 1555 and is included in Foxe's Book of Martyrs.
