Chrishall Common

Chrishall is a small village that sits at the highest point in the county of Essex. At 147 m (482 ft) above sea level, locals have avoided all road construction around the hill, allowing the village to retain its character. The village, therefore, is off the beaten track but is still fortunate enough to have many facilities. 

The village is also presumed to be the place where M.R. James set the short ghost story ‘The Story of a Disappearance and an Appearance’ (1919).
