Long Ridings Estate

The purpose of the Association is to exert pressure on our local authorities to ensure that the local area is well maintained and that money is spent wisely.

The Association is funded by voluntary subscriptions from its members.


Long Ridings Estate has a thriving shopping parade located in Woodland Avenue.


Long Ridings is only a short distance to local historic woodland and open countryside.   There is now a very safe footbridge across the Shenfield to Southend Railway tracks accesible from Shaw Crescent.


Long Ridings is also just a short walk from the very popular village of Shenfield with it’s easy connections to London, Chelmsford, Romford and Stratford Westfield.
