Kelvedon has been an important transport link for centuries. The ancient Roman Road from London to Colchester actually ran on the line of the modern day High Street, and many artefacts have been found in the town. The station dates back to 1843, so it can't quite live up to centurions and Caesars - but it's still important to the town in the 21st century, offering locals regular services to London Liverpool Street. When it first arrived, rail dealt a fatal blow to the town's then thriving stagecoach industry. But it proved a boon to local farmers, helping them get livestock down to London in good condition. The modern town's main income is provided by retail, with a bustling High Street full of independent shops and small cafes. The town also has 99 listed structures, with many of the best along Church Street and High Street. Look out for the old packhorse bridge crossing the River Blackwater - it's close to the station on Feering Hill.
