Historic Rochford

Rochford Town Team received a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant in November 2016 to fund an exciting project, "Rochford Heritage Trail - discovering the history on our doorstep". The grant was used for the initial development of these Historic Rochford webpages, together with the development of a Rochford Heritage Trail as part of a mobile app, a Heritage Trail brochure and training/publicity for guided walks.

These different formats are intended to encourage all community sectors and visitors to discover and learn more about Rochford’s rich and colourful heritage.

Rochford Town Team continues to enhance and develop these webpages with additional content and welcomes provision of further information, photos and memories.

Volunteers are also welcomed to help manage the site, research local heritage and take part in continuing with the delivery of the guided walks. Please contact us at if you are interested in getting involved.

Guided tours are available from time to time. For more information, visit our Heritage Trail webpage at
