Since the Parish Council took over the management of Noakes Place from Chelmsford Borough Council in 2000 our grounds staff also maintain this open space next to the Recreation Ground.

A Tree Trail leaflet is available to help you enjoy a walk through here. Copies are available free of charge from the Parish Council Office, the Community Association or Great Baddow Library.
