Thaxted
For over 1000 years Thaxted has been one of Essex's most popular towns. Famous for the Guildhall, magnificent Church and restored Windmill.


GUILDHALL

Thaxted Guildhall was built by the Guild of Cutlers 600 years ago, and is still in active use. In 1390, long before the Church was finished, the Cutlers chose a site near to Hall Gate, where three roads met, and started work on their Guildhall.
