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.
