Hempstead is a small historic village situated seven miles east of Saffron Walden in the north-west corner of Essex. The notorious highwayman Dick Turpin was born in the village public house. William Harvey, the man who discovered the circulation of blood in the human body, and Sir Eliab Harvey, Captain of the Temeraire at the battle of Trafalgar, are interred with many members of their family in the Church crypt.

We’re coming together as a Village!
At long last, our village can have a get-together. People have come to the Village and others have left since Covid started and we really wish to all meet up again, so we can re-meet with familiar faces and most importantly, welcome and make friends with those of you who have recently moved to Hempstead.
So, we your Parish Council urge EVERYONE to come to the Village Hall on Saturday 18th September from 4-5.30pm where you can buy drinks from the mobile bar, hear a brief intro, chat, laugh and make friends with all that live within our Village.
We’ll use all the Village Hall and its surrounding, but if it’s raining, we’ll be indoors.
Village Hall Patio
From Monday 20th September for three weeks, the patio at the rear of the village hall will be out of action as the old Pre-School Play Area is removed and the patio extended. Parking will be affected by deliveries and storage of materials. The footway to the right with access to the Glebe will be maintained for walkers. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
