What significant role did this building once play?


City Centre,


Chelmsford has a rich and varied industrial heritage which includes many groundbreaking inventions.
During this walking tour we will cover a large number of these marvellous achievements. The variety is amazing and includes from the early years the location of a rope maker’s walk and one of the many local iron foundries. From the Victorian era there is the first Marconi radio factory, a generator house used for public street lighting and a steam omnibus factory. The commentary will also include the building of the railway through Chelmsford, the precise manufacture of ball bearings, the evolution of radio, radar and the early days of television.

The walk starts at the junction of Mildmay Road and Hall Street (outside the old Marconi building), CM2 0DN, and finishes just off Meteor Way.
Advance booking is essential as numbers are limited.
Bookings can be made by calling Alan on 07779 931401 or E-mail
