In Focus: Great Dunmow
Every month we promote our top village in Essex and this month it is all about Great Dunmow.
Great Dunmow is an ancient market town in the Uttlesford district. The second Halifax Rural Areas Quality of Life Survey ranked Uttlesford District as the 4th best place to live in the UK out of 114 rural authority areas surveyed.
There are most certainly some exceptional rural and country properties in the area together with some of the most beautiful and well-kept villages in Essex. Not only are there substantial character properties outside of the town, many are situated within the town centre itself. In addition there are good quality developments taking place within the boundaries of Dunmow.
What's more, the commuter links are second to none. There is a railway station either side: Braintree to the east, and Bishop's Stortford to the west, which go straight into Liverpool Street on different lines in around an hour or less.
