The Local Branch:

Your local team is located in Britain's oldest recorded town, Colchester. We're a short walk from the local castle and Colchester Town train station, easily accessible via bus, train and car.

We cover a variety of local areas, from Braintree and Halstead over to the coastal towns of Clacton-on-Sea and Harwich, so those fish and chip lunch breaks at the seaside could become a reality.
