The county town of Essex, Chelmsford sits upon the rivers Can and Chelmer, some 32 mls from the centre of London. The town boasts a populace of approximately 111,500 inhabitants, while the Borough of Chelmsford has roughly 168,300.

It is a historic town that was the location of a Roman fortification in approximately 60 AD. Its St Mary the Virgin parish church was honoured with the title of a cathedral in 1914. The city is twinned with Backnang (Germany) and Annonay (France).

River Chelmer - geograph.org.uk - 411097Chelmsford Historic Past: The location of very early Bronze Age and Neolithic communities, the town was subsequently the site of a Roman fortification in around AD 60, and the village that grew up around the fortification was named Caesaromagus (Caesar's market place) by the Romans. A Saxon encampment came after the decline of the Roman Empire in Britain, and much later in the eleventh century Domesday Book it was named Celmeresfort, nevertheless one hundred years later it had taken on its contemporary name of Chelmsford.

At the time of the 13th Cent, Chelmsford took on the title of county town of Essex and in addition became seat of the local assize. In the 14th C some of the occupants of Chelmsford participated in the 1381 Peasant Revolt, a handful of the main agitators were thereafter executed in Chelmsford after the revolt was ended by Richard the Second.

The 17th C witnessed yet more executions as the"Witchfinder General" Matthew Hopkins, put on trial and hanged many assumed witches.

Over the generations a market town and agricultural hub, Chelmsford developed in to a substantial industrial town in the 19th Cent, making such items as ball bearings, agricultural machinery, traction engines, electrical engineering products and wirelesses. Its import in light industrial engineering resulted in its being a target of bombing in WW2, and it was hit quite a few times.

The train came to Chelmsford in 1842 (Eastern Counties Railway) bringing greater affluence for the town, much as the Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation had done around 45 yrs before (1797), when it joined Chelmsford with the Blackwater estuary, encouraging vessels to sail to the heart of the town from the open sea.

The town went into a period of decline during the nineteen-eighties, as a good deal of its industry closed, even so it continues to be a thriving and developing town today, primarily due to its nearness to London, plus the good road and rail communications.

Chelmsford is situated adjacent to the A12 between Brentwood and Colchester it's some 26 kilometres driving distance from Colchester and about fifty-one km from central London. Tourist Information Centre - Railway Station, Duke St, Chelmsford, Essex CM1 1HT. Telephone: 01245 263859.
