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.
Hogs Trough Bridge Widdington.
There are some very strange triangular stones that have been used to build the front steps of some
of the old Victorian houses in the High Street.
I would like to find out where these stones came from. Was it from the old bridge that was demolished
over a 150 years ago. I know it’s been recorded that some large stones were robbed out from the
old demolished Hogs Trough bridge and built into the front flint wall of Brick cottage in the High street
and wondered if these strange triangular stones were also part of that old bridge....anyone know…

The new school house was opened on the 3rd of June 1863
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.
