Colchester is Britain's oldest recorded town; in AD77 a Roman writer by the name of Pliny the Elder described the location of the Isle of Anglesey as being about 200 miles from Camulodunum, a town in Britain. This was the Roman name for Colchester as is the earliest known reference to a fixed settlement in Britain, hence the claim to be Britain's oldest recorded town.
The Colchester Borough Arms is a green cross representing the True Cross which legend says was found by St. Helena, Patron Saint of Colchester. The cross is pierced by 3 nails each with a crown surrounding it to depict the 3 Wise Men or Kings. The red background represents the blood of Christ. The Arms first appeared in 1413 on a charter granted to Colchester borough by King Henry V.
In 1998 a nationwide poll voted Colchester to be one of the best places in Britain to live for "quality of life" and low rates of crime.
Colchester is still a town full of buildings of great age and character, which we at GDL Interiors have had first-hand dealings with whilst refurbishing some of our clients based in Colchester. Great care has to be undertaken in the listed buildings to ensure all rules are adhered to and the authenticity of the buildings remains intact. One of GDL Interiors biggest clients in Colchester is Colne Housing Association who we have had the pleasure of carrying out large refurbishment works and on-going maintenance.
There are many restaurants and historic public houses, catering from all tastes ie MacDonald's through to French, Thai, Nepalese and of course Indian & Chinese. Colchester is also famous for their Oysters first sampled by the Romans. These are cultivated and harvested of the Coast of Mersey Island and enjoyed yearly at the Colchester Oyster Feast in the Town Hall.
Colchester also has many quaint old style shopping areas as well as the more modern shopping centre in Culver Square. Away from the town centre are several other shopping areas at Stanway, Turner Rise and Cowdrey Avenue. Colchester has its own award-winning independent department store Williams & Griffin which is renowned locally for its inventive window displays.
Visitors to Colchester Town should also investigate the cobbled streets of Eld Lane & Trinity Street, an area which is full of small character filled shops and tea/coffee rooms.
The town is also home to the University of Essex and is well known for its links with the army which has a large garrison based in Colchester. The badges of 19 regiments associated with the town can be seen displayed along the wall by the road as you pass up Balkerne Hill.
If you want to get out into the countryside within 20 minute drive of Colchester you can visit Flatford & Dedham, famous for the paintings of John Constable and again full of culture and history. Colchester's position close to the port of Harwich and London Stanstead airport makes it an ideal base from which to explore East Anglia, including places such as Norwich, Cambridge, Bury St. Edmunds & Ipswich.
Colchester is close to the Norfolk Broads and only a 45-minute drive from the famous horse racing town of Newmarket. Thanks to the fast train service to London you can be in Liverpool Street station in East London within 50 minutes or if you prefer the beach, Clacton and Walton-on-the-Naze are 20 minutes to the East. Clacton is a typical commercial resort, while Walton has a more sedate, quiet air about it but both have beautiful long sandy beaches.
