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.

We’re pleased to advise that all single DigiGo fares will be capped at just £2 from 1 January until 31 March 2023! Making it even cheaper for residents to access social, work, health or school opportunities.

This is because DigiGo is taking part in the government’s Bus Fare Cap Grant (BFCG).  Customers can book their reduce price journeys via the TravelEssex app as normal, where vehicles can be tracked in real time prior to and during the journey.

At a time when people are worried about the rising cost of living, the £2 bus fare cap can save customers up to 75% off the usual fares until 31 March 2023.  For an existing customer who takes 5 trips a week, they could save up to £120 a month compared to normal.

For more information about DigiGo, visit their website.

Unsure what DigiGo is?  DigiGo is an electric shared public transport service which offers on-demand or pre-bookable travel in parts of Essex. There is no fixed route or timetable, which puts customers in control of their journeys.
