Discovering Coggeshall Book

This is the website of The Coggeshall Society, which was established to stimulate an interest in conservation and planning for the parish of Coggeshall.

In 2010 the Society began a community project – Discovering Coggeshall, to establish accurate dates for the timber-framed buildings in the centre of the town in order to trace how Coggeshall developed over the centuries.

The website will be of interest to anyone interested in the history and development of Coggeshall.
