Good Easter is a small agricultural village right in the heart of Essex. The title of the local history book, ‘Seven miles from everywhere on the way to nowhere’, hints at its peaceful location deep in the Essex countryside.
A place which has been settled since at least the Roman times, Good Easter is rich in echoes of the past with historic trade routes, Norman barns and 18th century cottages all adding interest to the area.
In 1985, Good Easter earned a place in the Guinness Book of Records for making the world’s longest daisy chain. It measured 1.32 miles and was made in 7 hours by the villagers.
The surrounding countryside offers fantastic walks with the Essex Way running through the village and along parts of this route. There are extensive views from St Andrew's Church, and the village itself has some interesting old buildings,
The neighbouring village of High Easter is also steeped in history and offers stunning country walks. High Easter is home to the annual Point to Point Races.
