Join me for a walk around the delightful town centre of Braintree, located in the great county of Essex! With a history dating back thousands of years, from the Iron Age, Roman era, medieval period and modern day, there’s a lot to see in this unusually-named town.

As we walk around Braintree, we pass a number of interesting sights, including Braintree Town Hall, Market Place, The Swan Pub, The White Hart, Pig’s Head In The Pottage Pott Gant, George Yard Shopping Centre, High Street, Young Boy with Beavers and Sea Lions, St. Michael’s Church, Warner Textile Archive and Braintree Town Hall again.
