Rayne is a village of about 2,300 residents in the Braintree district of Essex in the East of England.It lies on the Roman road called Stane Street, about two miles (3 km) to the west of Braintree, which is the nearest town.It used to be a more important settlement than Braintree in Norman times, although this has not been the case for a long time now.Rayne has a playing field, a pub called The Swan, a village hall that overlooks the playing field, All Saints' church, a war memorial, a stream called Pod's Brook, and a small airfield. There are also the old manor house of Rayne Hall, and Old Hall; a previous Rectory. Rayne Hall was for a long time the home of the Capel family, who became Earls of Essex. In mediaeval times the Church was known for healing miracles: it was said that infertile women visiting the church were later able to conceive. A number of the churchyard memorials are made of cast iron: these were manufactured at the former foundry in The Street at around the end of the nineteenth century using a common mould into which individual letters were inserted to spell out the details.
