Kelvedon Hatch

The village of Kelvedon Hatch is situated approximately four miles north of Brentwood and is located in the heart of the Metropolitan Green Belt. It’s home to the Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker, the largest and deepest cold war bunker open to the public in South East England. Hidden in a wood off the A128 Ongar (now well signposted for the tourist trade), Brentwood Road, is a small bungalow (guardhouse) which hides a three-level bunker complex 125 feet underground. They host events, as well which are posted on their website, or you can just go along and visit.

On the grounds of the nuclear bunker is also Rope Runners, the first high ropes course in Essex, and winner of Essex Tourism Awards 2011, for best experience. It was founded by a husband and wife team who loved Parcours in France, and decided to set up a similar experience back home. There are instructors to aid or just give out advice. Skateboard is on the grounds also, it is a synthetic skating rink, for those with an active nature.

Kelvedon Hatch boasts St Nicholas church which was built in 1895, and its architecture has been recognised as a fine example of the Arts and Crafts Movement. There is some evidence that there was a church before the time of the Domesday Book.



The village is surrounded by green belt land, and the parish has three public houses which to enjoy good food and drink, and a delightful village pond.

It has a community primary school, with a nursery attached to it, and works closely with the village to take part in the annual fete, which is always a big success.
