Where we are

NB. Motorway J8 is now much improved take the “Airport” exit not the Bishops Stortford one.

For a closer look click here.

To get to the village from the south come up the M11 to the airport turnoff then follow all the signs to the airport. Just as you approach the main terminal building you will see the huge control tower on your left and just as the terminal building comes into sight in front of you, you come to a roundabout. Go almost all the way round it till you see a very small exit which leads within yards to a mini-roundabout. Turn left and follow the twisty rural road until you eventually reach a tee junction with the Crown pub dead ahead. Turn left this is Elsenham.

More local folk will approach from Bishops Stortford up the A1184 into Stansted Mountfitchet. Turn right into Chapel Hill B1051 (look for a large mock Tudor house on right corner). Go to the bottom of the hill then turn left, look for fork and take right (traffic lights). Follow till you reach a double roundabout, this is Elsenham. The shops are on your right the village hall straight ahead on the right, it doubles up as the school hall.

From the north drive through Stansted Mountfitchet but look for a triangular island on the left with a cast iron drinking fountain and turn left. This is Chapel Hill see above. If you see the Mock Tudor house this way you've passed Chapel Hill, keep going there is a roundabout not far away to double back on.

From the East all traffic is funnelled through the village just look for the Crown on your right and you're in the village.

For our other hall the Memorial Hall, The Bowls Club and the Tennis Courts, these are all on the recreational ground. Coming from Stansted but before reaching the double roundabout turn left into Leigh Drive and follow it round where you will find a gate opening onto the playing field car park a private road from there takes you round to the Hall etc and another smaller car park.
