Here we are leaving the car park on our way to a favourite tea room in Coggleshall last week. We will visit the tea room for coffee in my next post but first I will take you walking with me around the town.
Coggeshall, is a small attractive town once based on trade in wool and cloth, it is full of Timber-framed houses and has over 250 listed buildings
The wool trade was started by monks in the 12th Century, and the remains of the abbey, a chapel and the Grange barn can still be seen. The town was also once famous for its lace.
The BBC's Lovejoy series was filmed in the area
It is said that ley lines - energy lines linked to the earth's magnetic field - actually cross in Coggeshall, creating friction, and strange events.
