The Parish Church of St Nicholas was built about 1120, probably by Richard de Beaumes, Bishop of London.  During the late 1800's the then Rector, Reverend Ernest Geldart, personally painted and decorated what seems to be every square inch of the interior.  To visit this small church is an experience that you will remember.  It is still used for regaular services as well as for weddings.

The Braxted Bakery offers a wide range of cakes and drinks, as well as a hearty breakfast.  Ideally situated just a mile off the A12 Witham North junction it is open seven days a week.

The Green Man Public House offers a good range of ales and tasty hot meals.  Situated a little furtrher into the village by the village green there is ample car parking.

Starting at the Green Man there is a pleasant 5 mile circular walk enabling you to explore the pleasant countryside around the village in the knowledge that a warm welcome will await you in the Green Man on your return.
