Ingatestone station serves a charming Essex village in east England. Just 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street, it's a popular base for London commuters. The Grade II listed station dates back to 1844, and much of the Tudor-style brickwork remains, making it one of the more distinctive local stations on the British Rail network. It's no surprise that the area around the station is a designated conservation zone. Located in the heart of the Essex countryside, Ingatestone is superb base for exploring the pretty nearby villages of Fryerning, Stock and Mountnessing, the famous for a restored windmill that dates back to the time of George III. Closer to base - barely half a mile from the station, in fact - is Ingatestone Hall, one of the finest surviving Tudor mansions in the UK. The village itself is compact, with most shops and pubs ranged along High Street, a short walk north of the station.
