    It requires a responce from many residents to ensure that the proposed mainly road transport option is not used.
    Bradwell A was built in the 1950s and used mainly sea transport for its construction to a purpose built pontoon at Bradwell.

    Heritage Open Days Season.

    Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September in Danbury.

    The National Organiser of Heritage Open Days has announced that "...they WILL happen on 11-20 September, though the format will be revised.

    "The founding principles of the festival remain the same, a free event with local stories at its heart.   In view of the ongoing and fluid context though, we need to adapt the format".

    Here in Danbury we hope to be able to develop an on-line presentation that fits with this year's Hidden Nature theme.
    We are working with Alan Pamphilon, the Chelmsford organiser, who many of you know, to get this produced.

    Follow this site to keep up to date.
