Latest reviews | Events in Coggeshall | 10 Places to Stay

The historic village of Coggeshall is situated in North Essex on the old Roman road between Colchester and St. Albans. Between the 15th and 17th centuries Coggeshall was one of the most industrialised places in the area, ranking alongside Colchester in importance in the wool trade. The town was also once famed for its lace. Just a few years ago Coggeshall was renowned for the number of shops selling antiques and indeed the BBC's Lovejoy series was filmed in the area. The antique trade has somewhat declined, but there are still some shops and four ancient public houses, plus an "olde worlde" teashop which is situated underneath Coggeshall's very distinctive Victorian clock. The large 15th century church of St. Peter-ad-Vincula, an Essex ‘wool’ church, stands on Church Green and is one of the largest churches in Essex. It is said that ley lines - energy lines linked to the earth's magnetic field - actually cross in Coggeshall, creating friction, and strange events! The wool trade was started by monks in the 12th Century, and Grange Barn, on Grange Hill, is one of the oldest timber-framed barns in Europe. It was the barn of the Cistercian Monastery of Coggeshall and the remains of the abbey and chapel can still be seen. The Coggeshall Heritage Centre in St Peter's Hall, Stoneham Street, is a small heritage museum displaying items of local interest, with changing exhibits and a working wool loom. Marks Hall Gardens, is an arboretum in ancient woodlands with gardens and a visitor centre. It is famous for the massive 13th century Honywood Oak. Paycocke's House, in West Street, is owned by the National Trust, and shows the finest variety of domestic Tudor architecture with intricate carved woodwork and panelling and a display of the renowned Coggeshall lace. There is also an attractive cottage garden.
