A visit to Finchingfield village

Finchingfield is a village in the district of Braintree in North West of Essex in a rural area dating back to the Doomsday book of 1086 where it appears as Finchingfield a name that means field of Finc. The village was a official stop for horse coaches travelling from London to Norwich.

Finchingfield Braintree district and 54miles from London and close to Constable Country. There is many interesting buildings to be seen! The Guildhall was built in the 1500 and was used as schoolhouse. Dodge Smith the writer of 101 Dalmatians once owned the round house cottage where you’ll find a blue plaque stating the fact.

Also have read that there was a settlement in Finchingfield since historical records of the area began, also a strong connection to a Roman villa.

It is said that it’s the most photographed village in England with colourful cottages duck pond and a green where you’ll find people relaxing and enjoying the peaceful scenery. Have visited twice but as yet have not managed to see inside of the mill!? Hopefully next time.
