Widdington Village 

 A little treasure in North Essex

Widdington village is a small picturesque village situated two miles South east 
of Newport and around five miles south of Saffron Walden.

 Widdington is a delightful village.
Winding lanes lead up from Newport to Widdington village.
The Village Green has late 18-century farm workers Cottages 
mixed with earlier stone and thatched cottages from the late 1600's
The combination of such mixed housing makes 
Widdington village a real treasure.

The following road closures in Widdington have been announced by ECC;

Church Lane - for 1 day 23/02/18

Cornells Lane - for 1 day 26/02/18

Wood End Cut - for 1 day 08/03/18

These closures are required for the safety of the public and workforce whilst ECC 

undertakes Phase 1 of surface dressing works.

The annexed account entitled: 
The Village of Widdington, Essex

Was written in 1939, as an appendix to a History of the Hollis, Ainslic, 
Bullock, Smith, Griffiths, Murkin, and Perry Familes, and it may be well 
to preface the account by recording briefly how the four last mentioned 
families came to be associated with, or interested in, Widdington.
