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.

Plans have now been finalised for how Hempstead will celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on the weekend of 2nd - 5th June and are shown in the Guide you can download here.
A copy of the Guide has been delivered to every household.

A few copies will be available on the day but you are advised to bring your own.
