Introduction to our Village

Henham remains a rural community although now perhaps better described as a 'community in a rural setting.' As with most other villages in the area, there are few whose income is dependant on the land and the majority of working residents travel away from the area to seek a living. However on the positive side we retain our own church, primary school, village shop with a post office, public house, village hall, church hall and community centre. Our population is approximately 1250 plus.

Village Fete on Saturday 1st June at Wood End Green 

Gigaclear Update: We have been informed by Gigaclear that they have received a permit to work down Old Mead Road earlier than they thought – Essex Highways have plans to carry out roadworks further south which would cause a confliction in road diversions, so they have given Gigaclear a permit to complete the work on this stretch of road before they start, preventing any delays to us bringing fibre to Henham.  

The Parish Council has received the following update about Gigaclear work in Henham:

Gigaclear is working with Superfast Essex to build a full fibre broadband network in certain parts of Essex. As part of this programme, a small number of properties will be enabled by Gigaclear in Henham. To see if your property is included, please check your property's status at www.superfastessex.org/maps . Not in the plans? You can register your demand at https:www.gigaclear.net/

Just like other utilities, building the network involves digging trenches in private land (with permission), highway, the carriageway, verges and paths. We are currently aiming to continue our network building through to June and this will include parts of Chickney Road being closed as part of these works. Our contractors will provide a letter drop to residents who live on the affected road closure informing them of the work which will be undertaken, and updates will also be provided to the Parish Council.

If you have any queries regarding the network build, please contact our Network Build Care team on 01865591137 or e mail networkbuildcare@gigaclear.com
