The Sun Inn

A proper coaching inn with an elm bar, an open dining room, a snug oak panelled lounge all with open fires, exposed timbers, thick beams and meandering floors, it’s easy to be cosseted in this ancient inn. Keep warm by the fires, stay cool on the terrace, all year round there’s somewhere to unwind. Overlooked by St Mary’s Church tower, our garden has its own bar, we have bikes to explore on and boats can be arranged to float you down the Stour. Or simply sit in the village square pondering what route you may take to the cottage that was once Willy Lott’s.

Radical Essex is a project re-examining the county in relation to radicalism in thought, lifestyle, politics and architecture. A programme of events will take place across Essex throughout 2016 and 2017, shedding light on the vibrant, pioneering thinking of the late 19th and 20th centuries. The project will celebrate the crucial role Essex has played in the history of British Modernism and its utopian ideologies under the themes ‘The Modernist County’ and ‘Arcadia for All’.

The Radical Essex site is designed by Fraser Muggeridge studio and Alex Rich, developed by Twelve.

Radical Essex is led by Focal Point Gallery in collaboration with Visit Essex and Firstsite. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England it forms part of the country wide Cultural Destinations programme, a partnership with VisitEngland, supporting arts organisations to work with the tourism sector to deliver projects that maximise the impact culture has on local economies.
