In the heart of rural Essex, our Club Site at Kelvedon Hatch is within striking distance of the beaches of the Essex coast; but the cosmopolitan draw of London is only 20 miles away.
Kelvedon Hatch has a once-secret nuclear bunker designed to hold 600 personnel in the event of war. It is now a fascinating museum. The village church is famous for its Arts and Crafts architecture. Brentwood is four miles from Site. It has several attractions, including Mountnessing Windmill a restored post mill which still grinds corn. Trains into London go from Brentwood every ten minutes. Buses to the station stop half a mile from Site. Underground trains depart from Upminster on the District Line. The RAF moved to Blake Hall in 1940 after the destruction of North Weald Aerodrome.
A museum commemorates this in the Halls North Wing. Also at the Hall, the Tropical House holds one of the largest private collections of plants in the UK. Old Macdonalds Farm has a breeding colony of red squirrels. One of Europes largest markets and boot sales takes place on Saturdays at North Weald aerodrome. Greenstead church is said to be the oldest wooden church in the world. South Weald, Thorndon and Hutton Country parks are all nearby. There are several good places for eating out near the Site.
