We stopped at Chelmsford for breakfast on our way to Ipswich. I’m not really sure what we were expecting, but what we found was a rather nice and very clean city. Despite the fact that it wasn’t given city status until 2012, the local football team have been known as Chelmsford City since 1938! The Waterstones has recently had a refit and consequently looks very smart.
We would have liked to have visited the cathedral, but it being a Sunday morning they were in the middle of a service so we weren’t able to look inside.
