The Origins of Uttlesford’s towns, from Roman to Medieval times

16 February 2019 – 12  May 2019

Using archaeology, maps and social history collections this exhibition will look at the very different origins of Uttlesford’s four main towns, Saffron Walden, Thaxted, Great Dunmow and Stansted Mountfichet. It will also explore the origins and development of local settlements, which were once major centres, but now are more rural such as Great Chesterford, Newport, Clavering and Hatfield Broad Oak.
