VISITING - How to get here

The London Liverpool Street – Cambridge railway line runs South to North through the middle of the Hundred Parishes and includes the following stations within the Hundred Parishes: Sawbridgeworth, Stansted Mountfitchet, Elsenham, Newport, Audley End, and Great Chesterford.

Several other stations are close to the area and some of our walks start or finish from them. These stations are Roydon, Harlow Town, Harlow Mill, Bishop’s Stortford and Whittlesford (all on the Liverpool Street – Cambridge line) and St Margarets and Ware on the Liverpool Street – Hertford East line.

There are few main roads in the Hundred Parishes and part of the area’s charm is the lack of straight roads.

The M11 motorway runs South – North between London and Cambridge and passes through the centre of the Hundred Parishes, keeping heavy traffic away from the villages and lanes. Junctions 8 and 9 provide ready access.

The A10 trunk road north from London passes close to the western side of the Hundred Parishes.

The A120 trunk road links with the A10 in the west and passes West to East through the middle of the Hundred Parishes.

All other A roads and B roads are relatively minor, although some are over-loaded at busy times.

Much of the rural area is served by bus routes, although most are infrequent. Details are included on individual parish introductions.
