Welcome to Quendon and Rickling!
Our conjoined villages lie between Newport and Stansted Mountfitchet in Essex on the old London to Cambridge Road; previously the A11, and now the B1383. (Map)
Rickling (strictly Rickling Green) is contiguous with Quendon but is on more minor roads. Rickling village proper is a little way from Rickling Green, but consists of a very small community now, possibly resulting from middle ages plagues and consequent desertion of population, or perhaps simply due to alterations in traffic patterns with the development of other routes and consequent migrations in search of trade. See the History page for more information.
Our District Council is Uttlesford District Council, based in Saffron Walden's former hospital building in London Road (as well as others).
We have a seven-member Parish Council which does its best to provide what it can to maintain and improve the villages.
The Village monthly magazine, The Link, is delivered free to every household in Quendon and Rickling and may also be viewed and downloaded here. Past issues are also available to provide an insight to previous village activities. To enable speedier download, the images are moderately compressed.
The Quendon & Rickling 100 Club is a joint venture between the Village Hall Committee and the churches to help support the churches and village hall. An application form with further information can be downloaded from here.
More information about the villages and what is happening in them can also be found on the Q&R Parish Council Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100011970814112&fref=ts and on the Q&R Village Page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1419742138338703/
