Silver End Parish Council
Welcome to our site
Silver End is an unsual village in the heart of Essex with a fascinating history and still has a lot of the community feel that it had when it was first developed as a Garden Village by Francis Crittall in 1926. Have a look on our 'History' page to find out more about how Silver End was designed and developed as part of the Modern Movement.
These days it still centres around the original village centre, now comprising of a Co-op store with a Post Office, Boots Chemist, opticians, library, hairdressers, doctors surgery, charity shop and two take-aways. There is a village hall (the largest in the UK) which houses 'Jack and Jill's pre-school', the Children's Centre, a Social Club, and various other leisure activities including luncheon clubs and aerobics classes amongst many others. There is also a primary school, a pub with a beer garden, a bowls club and many other groups and clubs to join around the village.
There is plenty of green space in Silver End with two large playing fields which also provide tennis courts, a football pavilion and the Scout Hut. The Memorial Gardens, which has been awarded a Green Flag, has a childrens playground and plenty of space to enjoy a quiet picnic or wander down to the Rose Garden and the Japanese Water Garden. There are also allotment sites within the village aswell.
