Great Dunmow lies on the River Chelmer in north west Essex, between Bishop's Stortford, Braintree and Chelmsford, near Stansted Airport and the M11 motorway. You can see more detailed maps on the Location page.
The town is situated on a Roman road and is thought to have been the site of a Roman station. Today, Great Dunmow is home to around 9000 people and is popular with commuters, due to its mix of rural charm and good transport connections to London.
