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.

Essex and Suffolk Water will need to divert two of their water mains.  National Highways plan to help them with this by installing part of the infrastructure required for the water mains diversion across the A12 near Margaretting.

To do this safely, they will need a full closure of the northbound carriageway between junctions 12 (Brentwood) and 15 (Three Mile Hill/Webb’s Farm Interchange). This will take place from 9pm on Friday 5 April to 5am on Monday 8 April 2024.

A clearly signed diversion route will be in place.

Please note that the southbound carriageway will remain open during this period.
