Howe Green Community Association


Howe Green Village

The village of Howe Green is situated on the old Southend road out of Chelmsford in the county of Essex, England. For administration and mail services, the village forms part of the parish of Sandon. However, Howe Green is actually quite separate from Sandon village, being a mile to the South.

Howe Green is well served by roads, being close to the junction of the A12 London-Ipswich and A130 Chelmsford-Southend roads. The A130 is a new dual carriageway that bypasses Howe Green and other villages on the route. This road is a welcome recent development that has taken much heavy traffic away from the village. The nearest railway station is at Chelmsford on the London Liverpool St to Colchester, Ipswich and Norwich line. London is some 40 miles (60 km) distant and the journey by train takes around 35 minutes.
