The sought-after village of Wickham Bishops once belonged to the Bishop of London and is mentioned as far back as 'Wicham' in the Domesday Book. 'Wicham' was old English for a 'dwelling place with a farm' and the village is now the dwelling place of many outstanding homes of character – the perfect setting for this latest quality collection from Patten Homes.
Surrounded by far-reaching fields and historic woodlands the village is pleasantly rural, with a lively village hall, church and local convenience stores for everyday needs. The village hall is strong on community and is a perfect example of Wickham Bishops’ residents coming together. A sports field, football pitches, a cricket pitch, outdoor tennis courts and a large public open space offer leisure enthusiasts a wealth of opportunities – and the hall is also known to host to Summer and Christmas fayres with bouncy castles, displays, majorettes and fairground rides. The village centre has a convenience store, which sits side by side with other shops serving the area, for groceries, newspapers and daily necessities such as eggs, fresh bread, milk and coffee.
Local eateries such as Olio at The Chequers and The Green Man traditional public house offer excellent food and are perfect for relaxing, while Witham extends the choice of services to the area with its enviable combination of shopping, leisure and exceptional transport links – from the major arterial A12 road, to several trains an hour into London Liverpool Street in around 45 minutes using a fast service. Witham’s high street enjoys everything from banking and restaurants, through to chemists and clothing. Independent stores such as florists and renowned Holts the butcher bring unique qualities to the area, while supermarkets such as Morrisons and Tesco in the centre of town provide everything else you could need, including petrol at Morrisons. Together with its shopping precinct and its fashionable chain stores there is a traditional Saturday street market – all helping to make Witham a good shopping experience with a relaxed atmosphere.
For fitness and recreation the Witham Leisure Centre – with it's gym, ball courts, group exercise classes and swimming pool with sauna and steam room – is hard to beat, and keen golfers will be pleased with nearby Benton Hall Golf & Country Club or Rivenhall Oaks Golf Centre – which are both very well thought of locally.
