Description
Finkle Green is a small hamlet close to the village of Birdbrook; a truly charming north Essex village with a handsome mix of period and character homes and a strong local community with a pretty thatched pub and parish Church. The village is set usefully away from passing traffic but within easy reach of the main local routes and towns including Haverhill (4 miles) and Halstead (11 miles). The City of Cambridge is around 23 miles away and the junction on to the A11 and down to the M11 is around 15 miles. There are mainline stations at Cambridge and Audley End (14 miles) and London Stansted airport is around 32 miles away.
