About Stansted

Stansted Mountfitchet is a village located in the Uttlesford district in Essex county with a total population of 6,011 inhabitants. It is also located nearby the Hertfordshire border at 56 km north of London. The Stansted Airport is 3 km from the village and is the main gateway of the region.

The name of the village means “stony place” in Anglo-Saxon language. The suffix Mountfitchet wasn’t added until the Norman conquest of the village from the Mountfitchet Norman baron who used to rule these lands.

As landmarks, there are remains of the castle of Mountfitchet baron, where a reconstruction of an early Norman castle and village lies.

In the village there is also St Mary the Virgin’s Church, which was built in 1120. In 1889 there was built a chapel dedicated to Saint John the Evangelist which is nowadays the main village church. Other landmarks are the Hill Toy Museum, claimed to be the largest toy museum in the world, and also a working windmill built in 1787.
