Cotton End

Cotton End

Cotton End lies to the south of the parish.  The name comes from the Old English for cottage, the plural of which is 'coten'.   Cotton End manor house, built in the 16th century, is still standing.  Herring's Green is a tiny group of just 3 cottages on the Wilstead Road to the south of the village.  The Baptist Church is here. There used to be 2 pubs in the village:  The Bell is a well-known landmark, but The Harrows pub was closed some years ago, and is soon to reopen as a restaurant.
