Online Footpath Map
Essex County Council Highways have produced an interactive map of public rights of way (footpaths etc). It is available here. You can zoom right in and click on a particular path for more information.
The mobile library visits fortnightly:
Howe Green, Chelmsford Nursing Home – Wednesdays 9:20 am to 10 am
Howe Green, Alexandra Mews – Wednesdays 10.20 am to 10.50 am
Sandon, Lower Green – Tuesdays 9.35 am to 9.50 am
Filling the southern void has commenced. Work on the northern void is pending.
Local Weather Forecast
For a weather forecast for Essex click here.
Parish Councils requested a truly local (and accurate) weather forecast to combat the effects of poor television weather forecasts on the numbers of visitors to Essex. Poor forecasts also deter local people from getting out and about to enjoy their own and local villages, especially during bank holidays.
Forecasts are issued by actual meteorologists at our Chelmsford offices twice a day and there are no distracting adverts or spyware on the site. Also, we make no commercial gain.
