Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kelvedon is a village and civil parish in the Braintree District of Essex in England, near to the town of Witham. It has a population of 3,485. The existing village of Kelvedon has been a settlement since the early Middle Ages, though it stands near (and partly on) the site of a Roman settlement, probably Canonium. Kelvedon expanded significantly in the Victorian era. The reason was the Norwich - London railway, making it a place to live yet get to work as train was the only fast method of transport. Victorian Kelvedon was set along one street - The High Street. In the 1930s, with the advent of the car the High Street became the A12, the main road through Essex. Ribbon development saw houses sprawl along the road for miles. The village suffered major congestion until the bypass was built in the 1960s. Suburbanization started to take place in the 1980s - a large development called Riverside Park was constructed containing hundreds of homes.show more
