Chelmsford Market, located next to High Chelmer Shopping Centre, was first held more than 800 years ago and is still going strong five days a week, with a more specialist food market held on Fridays and Saturdays in High Street. A regular farmers’ market takes place at Hylands House in Hylands Park, while outside Chelmsford, monthly farmers’ markets are held in Matching Tye, Hatfield Heath and Colchester.

With London Liverpool Street just a 35-minute train journey from Chelmsford, the ultimate shopping experience is within easy reach, from the designer boutiques of Bond Street and Knightsbridge to the mass market appeal of Oxford Street and Westfield at Stratford City.
Little Waltham and Chelmsford are surrounded by countryside, so opportunities for running, cycling, hiking, horse riding, or simply taking in the views are plentiful.
The Falcon Bowling Club and Channels Golf Club are both within a few minutes’ walk of the development, while within the city itself 22 public parks lend themselves to sport and leisure.
