Village just outside Chelmsford, an Essex village with a deep history and for the most part, untouched. Clearly a farming village that hasn't been butchered yet, original houses, quint pub, town hall, even a pond with resident duck.
The village dates back at least 600 years, with some properties still retaining original features from that period. The local people are very friendly and inclusive, making everyone who visits the village feel welcome and part of the community.
Roxwell has its own local history group, Roxwell Revealed, which researches Roxwell's past and organises an annual parish walk together with a number of evening talks in the village hall. Their website can be found here. http://sites.google.com/site/roxwellrevealed/home
