Wimbish Dissenters

Wimbish Dissenters

Howlett End, an evocative name for the location of a burying ground in the flat Essex countryside in the parish of Wimbish. On the left-hand side, of the Saffron Walden to Thaxted road, there is a public footpath sign, by a house called 'Old Star House'. Follow the path for two or three hundred yards along some field hedges and you will find a small enclosure seemingly cut from the corner of a field, surrounded by several trees, the remains of a quickset hedge, and reached by a wooden bridge over a ditch. This is the Dissenters’ burial ground..
