Ramsden Heath is a sought-after village with an active community, situated roughly 2.7 miles north-east of Billericay.

There are a good range of facilities including three very good pubs - the White Horse (twice voted best family pub in East Anglia), the Nags Head (very popular traditional village pub) and the Fox and Hounds (recently taken over by locals Sarah & Mark who have quickly brought this country pub up the rankings to a great venue with the food there highly recommended).

There is a free church - The Christian Growth Centre along with a superb family-owned butchers - Andrews, a fairly new Coffee shop - `Hall & Co` and beauticians.

There is also a primary school - the Downham C of E Primary School.

The recently built air-conditioned modern village hall is available for hire and consists of a small hall, a large hall and kitchen facilities.

I, like many of the Ramsden Heath residents often nip down to `Hemmings` in the adjoining village of Ramsden Bellhouse, a well-stocked convenience store with an in-house Post Office providing the daily essentials.

As well as being in the catchment area for Downham Primary, Mayflower High School and Ramsden preschool the village has much to offer families of all ages.

There are award winning sports fields and a pavilion which includes football and tennis facilities.

Golf clubs are located in nearby Stock and Billericay.

There are plenty of local country walks, ideal for everyone and perfect for dog walkers, along with close and easy access to the Hanningfield Reservoir and Nature Reserve for fishing, bird watching and other activities.

For horse lovers, there are local riding stables, clubs and livery yards, all with easy access to a comprehensive bridleway system.

The local Recreation ground is well kept and maintained and has won awards for the facilities on offer including exercise equipment, table tennis, large variety of play equipment for children and basketball.

A bit of history

Ramsden Bellhouse and Ramsden Heath are now two separate villages, but until the first part of the 20th Century they were one village, which stretched from Stock in the north to Nevendon in the south.

The village was centered around the crossroads, where today the war memorial stands, in front of the White Horse Pub.

Confusingly it was known back then as Ramsden Bellhouse with Ramsden Heath simply an area of heathland to the north of the village.

About 1910 Homesteads Ltd bought Ramsden Bellhouse Farm and built an estate centre around St. Mary`s Church about a mile from the old village which became known as Ramsden Bellhouse, and gradually the old village became Ramsden Heath.
