Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hatfield Peverel is a large urban village and civil parish in the centre of Essex, England. Its population, including the hamlet of Nounsley, is approximately 5,500 (in 2004). Hatfield means a 'heathery space in the forest'; Peverel refers to William Peverel, the Norman knight granted lands in the area by William the Conqueror after the Norman invasion of 1066. Sited on high ground east of the River Ter, between Boreham and Witham on the A12, it is situated in the southern extremity of the Braintree District Council area (to which it elects two members).However, it is only 6 miles (10 km) northeast of Chelmsford, the nearest large town, to which it is more directly connected by road and rail.Hatfield Peverel railway station is on the National Express East Anglia rail network. London is 35 minutes away by train, a journey to Colchester takes 30 minutes. The station is open seven days a week, though ticket office opening times vary drastically. There is a notable railway viaduct across the River Ter just west of the station.show more
