Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chignal Smealy is a small village on the north-western outskirts of Chelmsford, Essex. The local church (St. Nicholas) is a red brick building, containing an unusual red brick baptismal font which has been used for many christenings.The spelling of the village name is open to discussion. Sometimes it is spelt "Chignall Smealy" other times, it is spelt "Chignal Smealy."The open views from the village give an excellent opportunity to watch the Queen's Birthday Flypast in June each year. The route is classified but in previous years the flight has been routed over the village then on to Hainault Country Park, Fairlop station and finally to the Mall. One memorable flypast over the village took place during the Queen's Golden Jubilee Weekend on 4 June 2002. A lavish flypast 14 miles long passed overhead at a speed of 310 mph, concluded by Concorde escorted by the Red Arrows.
