Little Warley is a settlement and former civil parish (abolished 1934)[1] in the Borough of Brentwood, Essex. It is situated south of Thorndon Country Park.

The first outbreak of the 2001 United Kingdom foot-and-mouth outbreak occurred here.

Since 2003 the area around St Peter's Church, but not the entire former parish, has formed part of the reconstituted civil parish of West Horndon.

Notable People[edit]

Albert Thomas "Robert" Marley, paternal grandfather of Jamaican musician Bob Marley, was born in the parish in 1851.[2]
