Charles Dickens described Chelmsford as the 'dullest' place on earth and added that there was not a lot to see here. He was wrong. This book does not focus on what you already know about Chelmsford, but what you don't. See the county town of Essex in a new light. Did you know Chelmsford was once close to staging the British Grand Prix, or that two churches fell down in the same year? Meet the jailer who ended up the wrong side of the bars, or marvel at Skeleton Man. You can even relive the day a bull went 'shopping' in the high street. Shocking, mysterious, curious and bizarre, Chelmsford has a rich history waiting to be explored.
