I have a great many memories around Great Dunmow and its vicinity. I worked in several places, so here are a few of them.
Before I worked I was at school in Dunmow and Felsted. The former junior school has gone, but the latter is still there. I used to bicycle the 6 miles to school each day, until I boarded for a couple of terms.
To finish off my visit to Dunmow, I paid a visit top the Doctors surgery. It is named after my father – quite an honour given the number of doctors that there have been in Dunmow. The senior practitioner, Dr Mike Tee, and a few of his staff were kind enough to give me a few minutes for a photograph outside.
Distances riding around Dunmow: 28 km, running total 813 km. 232 m ascent, running total 9546 m. No new tubs recently.
In May/June 2019, I am cycling the length on Britain, visiting all the places that I have lived and a few friends along the way. This is a charity ride aimed to raise funds for Alzheimer's Research UK and the Spinal Injuries Association. I will also have fun looking for various features along the way and exploring the meaning of memory

Hi Mark – have really enjoyed your tour of Dunmow, thank you so much for posting. I have been here since 1992, have seen huge changes even since then and indeed live on Flitch Green very close to where the silos would have been! Great to see and good luck!
Hi Alan, thank you for your comments. Flitch Green felt slightly unreal to me – very few community facilities etc, so I am glad to hear that it is real!
