Listed in the Domesday Book, Berden is a peaceful village in the North West corner of Essex, on the border with Hertfordshire and only 5 miles from the border with Cambridgeshire. It is one of the higher parts of the county rising to almost 120m and is part of the chalk uplands that stretch across to Royston. It is in the district of Uttlesford and according to the 2011 census had a population of 465 people.
We have a lively community with many village organisations and events, details of which can be found here on the website.
The village also has some fabulous walks with many great footpaths to explore.
