Rochford Town Team

Rochford Town Team aims to raise awareness of Rochford's unique historic character. A Heritage Lottery grant helped us create a Heritage Trail covering many historic places in this ancient market town. Discover more with our free mobile App (search for 'Historic Rochford' in your app store), buy a 48-page A5 Heritage Trail booklet for just £3, come on a Guided Tour or browse our Historic Rochford webpages. 


Rochford is one of the oldest and most historic towns in Essex, with a long connection to kings, queens and other prominent people. Its history embraces smugglers, coaching inns, the Boleyn family and a rich Christian heritage, including the Peculiar People.

Guided tours around parts of Historic Rochford and 'The Old House' are organised periodically or can be pre-booked. In-costume guides add colour as you 'step back in time'.
