Welcome to the Cold Norton Parish Council website

The Parish of Cold Norton lies approximately 4 miles south of Maldon and 10 miles south east of Chelmsford. It is situated at the south-east end of the Danbury Ridge. The village is inconspicuous from distant viewpoints as it is set within a dip of the gently undulating landscape. To the south of the village lies Beacon Hill from where the land slopes down to the Crouch Valley. North-eastwards from the village the land falls to a low-lying plain and the Blackwater Estuary.

The main part of the settlement is astride the Latchingdon Road between Three Ashes Corner and the railway bridge, with some housing extending north and west of Three Ashes corner, eastward from the railway bridge towards Palepit Corner, and to the south near to North Fambridge. The Parish Church of St. Stephens is located on a south-facing slope on the road leading to North Fambridge.

The built core of the village is generally well landscaped with many mature trees and established hedgerows. The rural parish beyond is partially wooded with scattered areas of dense vegetation, particularly along the disused railway. The golf course to the south of the village includes Beacon Hill, which is a dominant feature in the landscape.
