Welcome to Felsted

Located in north-west Essex and with a population of around 3,000, the Parish of Felsted has at its heart the historic village of Felsted, surrounded by Greens and Hamlets, in a beautiful rural setting. You can see pictures taken around the parish here.

Felsted retains the underlying charm and attraction of a rural parish, with the community and village at its heart. This is what attracts people to the area and what we as the Parish Council see as our historic duty to protect. Preservation of our heritage is balanced with a duty to ensure that the Parish thrives and meets the future needs of our community.

A message from Kemi Badenoch, MP for the Saffron Walden Constituency:

“I understand that rural crime can have a huge impact on our communities, and I want to know if you have been affected. Too often rural crime goes unreported and we need accurate information to help reduce it across our constituency. Please take a few moments of your time to complete my survey and share your concerns.”
