Hempstead Village Church - Helen Philip 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.

To ALL Essex Residents: In a move to slow the current rates of infection across our county, from Saturday, Essex will be placed into the high level of restrictions (tier 2 on the new COVID system). What does this mean? No household mixing indoors – this includes at home or in hospitality venues Different households can meet outdoors in public spaces but must stick to the 'Rule of six' 10pm curfews will remain in place for all pubs and restaurants Remember hands, face and space Reduce travel where you can If we act now, we can stop the spread and protect our loved ones as we head into the winter months. Detailed information on the new guidelines is available here: www.essex.gov.uk/coronavirus #StaySafeEssex

Village Hall

Our regular hirers have been able to return safely to carry out their activities. Social distancing rules mean that numbers remain limited, but it does mean that Keep Fit and Yoga classes have resumed. We are not currently open for parties etc but should anyone wish to hire for a club or activity please contact Julie Wilson at julie@hempstead-essex.org.uk who would be more than happy to discuss your requirements. As always, the committee continues to monitor the latest government guidance and will open up further once able.
