Hockley Parish Council, The Old Firestation, 58 Southend Road, Hockley, SS5 4QH
Hockley is located between Rayleigh and Rochford. Too large to be a village, but too small to be called a town, Hockley's origins are lost in the mists of time. Hockley is mentioned no less than three times in the Domesday Book, and the then Hamlet of Plumberow twice.
Hockley is famous for its 280-acre ancient semi natural woodland local nature reserve in the heart of Hockley. Its ecological importance is recognised and protected by its designation as a site of special scientific interest.
