Moving to Essex?
Essex is so often the butt of jokes that you have to ask whether perhaps the rest
of Britain is jealous. To hear the stories, anyone would imagine a county that is
one huge bar, where a girl isn’t properly dressed unless she’s in a mini and high
heels and a man has to have a red sports car to call himself a man. But most of
Essex is green, and it claims the longest inhabited town in Britain, Colchester,
with some of the most successful people.
In pre-Roman Britain the territory was home to the Trinovantes tribe, which had
grown wealthy through intensive trade with the Roman Empire. This was the first
area to be annexed by the Roman Emperor Claudius in AD 43 when he began his invasion
of Britain, and Colchester became the first capital of the province of Britannia.
This did not last long: during the rebellion of Boudica in AD 61 the city was destroyed
and the capital moved to London. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the Saxons
moved in, giving the county its name: Ēastseaxe, the eastern kingdom of the Saxons.
Colchester, the county town, was granted a royal charter in 1189 by King Richard
the Lionheart. Ever since, it has been an important garrison. Between 1550 and 1600
large numbers of weavers and cloth makers from Flanders moved to the area, where
they became famous for the quality of their wares. Essex became very rich as a result
and continues to prosper, its warm climate and friendly people attracting plenty
of migrants from all over the country and internationally.
Colchester is littered with ancient buildings, the oldest of which is the Roman
Circus (chariot race track), which was discovered under the Garrison in 2004. Colchester
Castle is an 11th century keep built over the ruins of the Roman temple; the Castle
Museum, found within, has an extensive exhibit on Roman Colchester. The Saxon built
church of St Peter-on-the-Wall, in nearby Bradwell-on-Sea, dates from the 7th century.
At Burnham-on-Crouch, the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club was the United Kingdom's entry
in the “International Exhibition of Modern Architecture” held at the Museum of Modern
Art in New York City in 1932. People looking for a more traditional seaside resort
will enjoy Southend-on-Sea, which has a fantastic pier and wild nightlife. Romford
is also known for its bars and clubs.
Epping Forest, once the hunting preserve of the Tudor monarchs and later a hideout
for the notorious 19th century highwayman Dick Turpin, is now a huge conservation
area covering 2,450 hectares. It is very ecologically diverse, with areas of woodland,
grassland, heath, rivers, bogs and ponds. Trees that were once pollarded have now
grown huge crowns, very different from what can be seen in other forests, and eerie
in the twilight. Riding, mountain biking and rambling are all popular activities
– the annual Epping Forest Centenary Walk is on the fourth Sunday of every September.
There are several stately homes within the forest, including Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting
Lodge in Chingford, now a museum.
With all this diversity, and such a rich heritage, there doesn’t seem to be any
reason to mock Essex. But he who laughs last laughs longest – and no one’s giggle
is as infectious as an Essex girl’s.
