The majesty of Thaxted

You might recall that we held last year’s CPRE Essex AGM in Thaxted, after which we took to the streets for Richard Haynes’s fascinating tour of this beautiful town.
No one there could have failed to be captivated by the excursion and so we can only be grateful to lensman Gordon Ridgewell for his latest contribution to these pages:
“I had to visit Thaxted recently and the guildhall was looking majestic towering over the scene,” he tells us.
‘Majestic’ almost doesn’t do it justice!
