A short walk around the centre of Chelmsford
Chelmsford is one of Britain’s newest cities but there has been a major settlement here for 2,000 years.
The county town of Essex has been the site of a Roman trading post, medieval market and Victorian industrial centre. This walk explores how Chelmsford has reinvented itself several times.
Look out for a Roman road and a bridge that spans Europe. Visit 'the home of radio’ and England’s second-smallest cathedral.
This walk was created by a local school pupil, Ollie Barnard, from King Edward VI Grammar School for the Royal Geographical Society’s Young Geographer of the Year competition in 2012.
