Getting to Coggeshall By Car
There are a few different routes which will take you into Coggeshall by car, three of which are via the A120:
- Coming from the east, via Marks Tey or Colchester, you will take a left turn onto Colchester Road. This will take you past beautiful lush fields on the left and keep going down to East Street, with its picture-perfect colourful houses.
- Making your way from Earls Colne, you will have to cross both lanes of the A120 and come down Colne Road, taking you to the east side of the village. Be careful at this junction as it isn’t the most straightforward and lorries turning towards Earls Colne can block your view. Also look out for the markings as these will help you to navigate the junction.
- Arriving from Braintree, you will need to take a right turn that takes you down West Street and past the football club and vineyard. You will then get closer to the centre, so slow down outside Paycocke’s to admire the incredible timber building.
There are a couple of other routes that also get you to Coggeshall:
- Kelvedon: if you are coming from Witham or Chelmsford, you will take the exit off the A12 to go through Kelvedon. Turn left off the High Street to head along Coggeshall Road towards the train station, but keep going under the bridge and the road will wind all the way along to Coggeshall.
- Feering: travelling from Tiptree or if you are coming from Colchester and want to avoid the A120, this is probably the best route for you. Turn off London Road to bring you down Feering Road (also confusingly labelled Coggeshall Road on some maps). It does give you a lovely little detour through Feering and past the stunning Feeringbury Manor that will be hidden by trees, but has its gardens open in the warmer months to raise money for charity.
