The county town of Essex, Chelmsford is set upon the rivers Can and Chelmer, around thirty two miles from the centre of London. Chelmsford has a population of around 110,000 occupants, and the Borough of Chelmsford has roughly 168,300.

It is an early town that was the location of a Roman fortress in about 60 AD. Chelmsford's St Mary the Virgin parish church was named a cathedral in 1914. The city is twinned with Annonay (France) and Backnang (Germany).

River Chelmer - - 411097Chelmsford History: The site of very early Neolithic and Bronze Age colonies, the town was later the location of a Roman fort in roughly the first century AD, and the town which evolved round the fort was called Caesaromagus (Caesar's market place) . A Saxon encampment followed after the downfall of the Romans in Britain, and much later in the 1086 Domesday Book it was named Celmeresfort, though one hundred years later it had become known by its modern identity of Chelmsford.

During the 13th century, it took on the title of county town of Essex plus became seat of the local assize. During the fourteenth century some of the citizens of Chelmsford took part in the Peasants Revolt (1381), a handful of the ringleaders were consequently executed in the town after the rebellion was ended by Richard the Second.

The 17th C saw even more executions when the"Witchfinder General" Matthew Hopkins, put on trial and executed countless presumed exponents of witchcraft.

For several years a market town and agricultural centre, Chelmsford evolved into a considerable industrial town in the nineteenth century, manufacturing such goods as steam engines, electrical engineering products, wirelesses, traction engines and ballbearings. Its prominence in light industrial manufacturing led to its being a bombing target in WW2, and it was successfully hit many times.

The railway line arrived in Chelmsford in 1842 (Eastern Counties Railway) bringing increased prosperity for the town, comparable to what the Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation had some some forty five yrs earlier (1797), when it interconnected Chelmsford with the estuary of the River Blackwater, letting watercraft to access the heart of the town from the open sea.

Chelmsford went through a period of decline in the 1980's, since much of its manufacturing facilities ceased to be profitable, in spite of this it continues to be a thriving and blooming town today, primarily due to its proximity to London, plus its first rate rail and road links.

The town sits adjacent to the A12 in between Brentwood and Colchester it's roughly 26 kilometers car journey from Colchester and about 32 miles from the centre of London. Address of Tourist Information Centre - Railway Station, Duke Street, Chelmsford, Essex CM1 1HT. Phone: 01245 263859.
