Welcome to Quendon and Rickling!
Our conjoined villages lie between Newport and Stansted Mountfitchet in Essex. The B1383 road forms the core of Quendon. Previously the A11, it still carries an enormous amount of road traffic and adherence to the 30mph speed limit is encouraged.
Rickling (strictly Rickling Green) is contiguous with Quendon but is on more minor roads. Rickling village proper is a little way from Rickling Green, but consists of a very small community now, possibly resulting from middle ages plagues and consequent desertion of population, or perhaps simply due to alterations in traffic patterns with the development of other routes and consequent migrations in search of trade. See the History page for more information.
Our District Council is Uttlesford District Council, based in Saffron Walden's former hospital building in London Road (as well as others).
We have a seven-member Parish Council which does its best to provide what it can to maintain and improve the villages.
The Village monthly magazine, THE LINK is delivered free to every household in Quendon and Rickling and may also be downloaded from this site. Each month's issue is available before the end of the previous one, both the latest and previous issues are available. Please see THE LINK in the side panel menu. Please note that though the pictures in them are reduced in resolution, the files are still quite large and may take a while to download.
