Writtle Village

After reading in Bill Bryson’s book, “At Home”, about the history of radio and how Marconi set up the first public broadcast station in the Writtle village, near Chelmsford, I wanted to go and see what is there. Nothing much related to that famous piece of history can be found there, as it seems that the shack from where the transmission was made was moved to Sandford Mill, but Writtle is a very cute village with well kept, imposing even, houses. We also had a very nice lunch in the Rose&Crown pub.
