Earls Colne


Earls Colne is a beautiful village nestling in the Colne Valley and named after the Earls of Oxford and the River Colne, which flows through the valley below. St. Andrew's Church dates from the 14th century and there are many houses built in the 17th and 18th centuries (see the House Detectives Trail available in the Library or Parish Council office). Visitors to Earls Colne can visit the Heritage Museum, use the many footpaths to enjoy the surrounding countryside and nearby Chalkney Wood. There are also two golf courses, several pubs and restaurants, and a selection of shops. The area has remained inhabited continually and has grown into the largest of the four 'Colne' villages.
