Once described by Dickens as “the greatest place in the world” Chigwell remains far less out of the way than it was in Dickensian times.

Formed as a rural farming community before the 10th century and later famed for its mineral springs, this picturesque community is famous for its old village, which is the Chigwell so famously represented by Dickens in his letter to John Forster as well as in his novel Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of ‘Eighty’.

The Bowls is conveniently serviced by rail and tube stations at Roding Valley, Chigwell and Hainault. Grange Hill Tube station is situated less than a 10 minute stroll away. Liverpool Street is less than 30 minutes and it takes just 36 minutes from Chigwell to Oxford Circus. For those who prefer to drive, the M11 or M25 are both easily accessed from the village.

The Bowls is centrally located to take advantage of the well planned local infrastructure that makes living in Chigwell so attractive and advantageous.
