Writtle Village Sign

Wednesday 5th June

Writtle Wireless Walk


We have a local guide to take us on a circular walk around Writtle village highlighting its many connections to the early days of wireless broadcasting and the Marconi Company. The walk will feature the stories behind both the buildings and people that were involved in making this event happen. An event 100 years ago that would change our world and the way that we communicate forever, and it all started in the village of Writtle.

The walk takes around 90 minutes and starts at the village sign at the top of the Green opposite the Rose & Crown PH at 7.30pm.

A "Chelmsford History Walk" supported by Chelmsford Civic Society. We'll be asking for contributions of £5 per person.
