The modern town of Chelmsford was created in the Middle Ages. At the time of the Domesday Book (1086) the land on the site of the modern town centre belonged to the Bishop of London. About 1100 Bishop Maurice built a bridge across the River Can. As a result traffic which used to travel through Writtle was now diverted through Chelmsford. Then, in 1199, Bishop William obtained a charter from the king. The charter gave the bishop the right to hold a weekly market near the bridge. In those days there were very few shops and if you wished to buy or sell anything you had to go to a market. Once the market was up and running merchants and craftsmen would come to live in Chelmsford. So a town was born.
In 1201 the king gave the bishop the right to hold an annual fair in Chelmsford. In the Middle Ages fairs were like markets but they were held only once a year for a few days and they attracted buyers and sellers from far and wide. Chelmsford quickly grew into a busy little town. To us it would seem tiny, with only several hundred inhabitants but by the standards of the time it was a respectable size. Medieval Chelmsford prospered partly because of its position on a busy main road. There was also a leather industry in Chelmsford and there were skinners and tanners. There was also a wool industry in Chelmsford. After it was woven wool was fulled. That means it was pounded in a mixture of water and clay to clean and thicken it. In the Middle Ages wooden hammers worked by watermills pounded wool. When it dried the wool was dyed. In Chelmsford there were also drapers and mercers (dealers in fine cloth).
In the 13th century friars came to Chelmsford. The friars were like monks but instead of withdrawing from the world they went out to preach. The friars in Chelmsford were Dominicans, known as black friars because of their black costumes. From the late 13th century there was also a leper hostel at Moulsham. In 1430 a man named William Caleys was burned to death in Chelmsford for heresy. Then in 1348-49 the Black Death devastated Chelmsford, like the rest of the country. The plague may have killed half the population. However Chelmsford soon recovered. Some idea of the sanitary conditions in Chelmsford at that time can be gained from the fact that in 1475 the townspeople were forbidden to let their pigs roam the streets!

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
