Chelmsford Museum and Essex Regiment Museum
Mousham Street, Oaklands Park, CM2 9AQ

Chelmsford Railway Station is approximately a 30 minute walk with direct links from Liverpool Street Station, Braintree, Clacton on Sea, Colchester, Harwich, Norwich and Witham. Buses 32, 46 and 351 run from outside the Station and take 10 minutes to the New London Road bus stop, opposite the Rising Sun Pub, from where there is a 5 minute walk to Oaklands Park.

The nearest car park is Mousham Street Car Park which can be booked online for approximately £5.00 per day. Then a short walk. Oakland Park itself, only has a 2 hour maximum stay, although we understand that you can park for free on nearby streets, observing any yellow line restrictions.

Lunch is not provided: The Museum has an excellent cafe with a wide choice of sandwiches and light lunches. There are a number of external venues to eat close by. A room will be available for those who wish to bring their own lunch. If the weather is reasonable, Oakland Park is a very pleasant place for a picnic.

7th Staffs Regiment was at Gallipoli  and my grandad , Bertie Henry Crick   ( 9362 ) was also there too.  He was evacuated to the Greek Islands and the Egypt before being sent to Ypres,  in the trenches and is buried at St Jan CWG N02 cemetery .He was killed in action just 27 promoted to Corporal

I never new him , not even a photo of him but admire his courage and without him I would not be here.

 

Lest we forget

PS. If anyone could find me a photo of him  I would be very grateful indeed
