Great Baddow is an urban village in the Chelmsford borough of Essex. It is close to the county town, Chelmsford, and is one of the largest villages in the Country. At the heart of the old village there are over 30 listed buildings. The village has been the site of a Marconi research centre (now BAE) for many years, and major development started in the fifties with the building of the Rothmans Estate for workers at Marconi's and English Electric Valve Company in Chelmsford. During the 1960's multi-storey housing, shops, and offices were built on the Vineyards, a country house turned hotel in the centre of the village. Great Baddow has five pubs -- The White Horse, The Blue Lion, The Kings Head, The Beehive and The Star. According to information in the village church of St Mary, the rebel leader Jack Straw led an ill-fated crowd (the "men of Essex") from the churchyard to London, in one of the risings in the 1381 Peasants' Revolt. A former Chain Home radar transmitter tower, originally sited at Canewdon, can now be found on the outskirts of the village where it is used to test equipment for BAE.
