High Easter is located in central Essex, some seven miles north west of the County City of Chelmsford, and four miles south of Great Dunmow.  The village is situated approximately 75 metres above sea level and lies just west of the source of the River Can, which flows south eastwards from the village to meet the River Chelmer in Chelmsford.  High Easter with a population of 670, is in the district of Uttlesford and the parliamentary constituency of Saffron Walden.

 

High Easter developed as a linear settlement to the east of the Parish Church and was known as 'High Estra' before the Norman Conquest.  'High' because of its elevated position and also to distinguish the village from its neighbour - Good Easter - which is situated one and half miles to the south.  'Estra' comes from the Anglo-Saxon word meaning 'sheepfold'.
