Sewards End Village Website


Sewards End extends along the Walden Road, two miles east of Saffron Walden. The village is about a mile long on the B1053. It is 43 miles from London, 17 from Cambridge and 14 from Bishops Stortford. Audley End railway station is 4.5 miles away. Some of the village dates back to the 11th century. Today Sewards End has about 190 houses and about 140 children. The village has an active WI, Horticultural society, youth club, mothers and toddlers, and carpet bowls. A library van visits the village every Monday evening. There is an annual open gardens day in the summer, an annual flower and vegetable show, and St James Church holds services every two weeks. Most years we also hold a village fete.

A village history was written in 2000 and republished in 2009. Copies can be obtained from Tracy Coston  (Tel: 01223 894462).

The Parish Council was set up in 2004.

Sewards End Community Orchard

Thank you so much to everyone who came to help plant the Community Orchard on Saturday afternoon.  

The PC would also like to thank Nathan Tarling from 'Down to Earth Groundworks' for giving up his time and machinery to dig the holes for the trees.

The PC purchased a Liquid Amber, 3 Field Maples and 3 Malus Elstar apple trees along with stakes, ties and tree mulch for all the trees.  The cost was £ 1,053.00 of which £ 1,010.78 was covered by grants from UDC Community Grant and Cllr Howard Rolfe's Councillor budget leaving the PC
£ 42.22 to pay out of their funds.
