Primary tabs

"Galleywood is a village surrounded by countryside in Essex, about 30 miles from London, and close to the city of Chelmsford. . . Galleywood dates back to early medieval times and was recorded in 1250 as Gauelwode (Galleywood Common), a hamlet of Great Baddow, part of an ancient forest interspersed with open scrubland. In early-Victorian times the village was centred on The Eagle crossroads, The Street and Well Lane, education being provided by a school that doubled as a Chapel of Ease on Sundays and by a Methodist chapel built in Well Lane. . . The population has grown from under 800 in 1851 to around 1,000 in 1951 and to over 6,000 in 2004. . . Within the village outskirts there are several surviving long established working farms, some with buildings dating back to the 14th century." [Wikipedia]
