Earls Colne Millennium Green

Earls Colne Millennium Green was the first of its kind to be opened in Essex. Originally the brainchild of the Parish Council, its creation was made possible by the enthusiastic support of local people and businesses.

Braintree district Council played a major part in helping to create it, and the Millennium Commission via the Countryside Agency, provided a substantial grant. The twelve acre site commands fine views over the valley towards Halstead, and slopes down to Bourne Brook at the bottom. All the trees are native, and the grass is full of wild flowers. This is a place for people of all ages to visit, for quiet enjoyment, to play or explore. It also provides a valuable new habitat for wildlife.
