Update 2nd July 2018

After being closed for nearly 2 1/2 years as the road was being undercut by river erosion, the repair works to the embankment of the Stort were completed  and Cock Lane was re-opened to vehicular traffic.
The efforts by parishioners (especially those at Deers Green), parish councillors, Essex County Cllr Ray Gooding & Kemi Badenoch MP in ensuring that Essex County Council Highways Department and the Environment Agency did not forget this tiny, protected lane in north west Essex must be acknowledged. Thank you
