This Essex town has existed since 913 and is now a rambling place with many old and attractive houses.

The church on Chipping Hill has some interesting monuments and a screen dating to the 14th Century, the South porch dates from about 1200 and the tower contains Roman brickwork.

Two miles North-West of the town you will find Faulkbourne Hall, much restored but still containing much of it’s lovely Tudor brickwork.
