Essex is a county of gently rolling countryside and winding lanes. It has England's oldest recorded town, the largest Norman Keep ever built, the largest surviving Roman gateway in Britain, a wealth of fine Medieval buildings, a 1300 year old Saxon chapel, an amazing variety of churches and Dedham Vale - home of John Constable.
