Charles Dickens described Chelmsford as the 'dullest' place on earth and added that there was not a lot to see here. He was wrong. This book does not tell you what you already know about Chelmsford, but what you don't. See the county town of Essex in a new light. Did you know Chelmsford was once close to staging the British Grand Prix, or that two churches fell down in the same year? Come and meet the jailer who ended up on the wrong side of the bars, or marvel as Skeleton Man. You can even re-live the day a bull went 'shopping' in the high street. Shocking, mysterious, curious and sometimes bizarre, Chelmsford has a rich history waiting to be truly discovered. Delve in to unravel just some of its 'secrets'.
