Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council
The villages of Ingatestone & Fryerning
in Essex are located between Brentwood
and Chelmsford. Despite a population of
nearly 5,000 and rail and road links to
London and the north, the area retains a
rural atmosphere and the villages are
surrounded by Green Belt, farmland,
ancient hedgerows and woods.
Fryerning is the smaller village
and, apart from some changes to
properties, has remained largely
unchanged for many years. The network of
public footpaths and bridleways makes it
easy to enjoy this picturesque area.
Ingatestone is the larger village
containing shops for most needs,
churches, schools, doctor’s surgery,
library, post office, railway station,
pubs and restaurants. There are two
conservation areas in Ingatestone
containing several listed buildings.
