Welcome to the Parish of Kelvedon Hatch

Our village is situated approximately four miles north of Brentwood, Essex and is located in the heart of the Metropolitan Green Belt. Adjoining Parishes include Blackmore, Doddinghurst, Navestock and Stondon Massey.

Whilst the primary shopping and transport facilities are located in nearby Brentwood, the village boasts its own Post Office, convenience store, camping shop, estate agent and DIY outlet. Local education is provided by an excellent Infant and Junior school with a choice of good Comprehensive schools in Brentwood. Local clubs and organisations are well catered for with both the village and church halls providing a convenient venue for many popular local activities and functions.

Swan Pond

A delightful village pond provides a central focus for the village. The parish has three public houses within its boundaries providing attractive venues for those wishing to enjoy good hospitality, food and drink.

The Green Belt designation has led to Kelvedon Hatch becoming a very popular commuter village surrounded by open space, well-maintained footpaths and arable farmland. Access to the M25 motorway is only minutes away and with a good and regular train service to London from Brentwood, the village is a very pleasant and popular place to live.

This web site is under constant revision and is provided for the benefit of all residents of Kelvedon Hatch. If you have any comments or suggestions for improvement please contact the clerk
