Retirement properties in Essex
Essex’s history has been shaped by a wide variety of cultures, including the Romans, Saxons and even the Vikings. But throughout Essex it is the legacy of the Norman invasion of Britain that is most visible.
They build great castles, reconstructed many churches and developed townships. Perhaps the finest of the Norman castles is that at Hedingham.
But there is yet more to Essex than this historic landscape. Its medieval success in the wool trade has left behind delightfully crooked timber-framed houses and vast beautifully decorated churches that stand proud throughout the region today. Then there is the county’s 350 miles of coastline to be explored – Essex boasts the longest shoreline of any county in England. It is rich in wildlife and boasts a rigged beauty.
Chipping Ongar is a lovely old Essex town, with a remarkable Saxon wood church and a charming old fashioned railway station – so lovely, that John Betjemen once vowed that the only job that would drag him away from poetry would be to become the manager of it.
A much more lively destination is Chelmsford, the county’s only city, which offers endless entertainment and retail opportunities and is only a 35-minute train ride from London.
