More about Moulsham Street

Take a wander down Moulsham Street the historic centre of Chelmsford with an interesting and varied past stretching back to Roman times.

Today Moulsham street is home to great range of shops, services, cafes, restaurants and bars, offering an individual shopping experience with an eclectic range of specialist goods and services not available elsewhere in the city. With owner run businesses and retailers delivering great customer service with passion and attention to detail that keeps customers coming back.

Over the years Moulsham street has seen many changes with traders coming and going. Some of the longest established businesses include Gallery43, County Interiors and Chelmsford Carpet Centre, others are newly established over the last couple of years such as Boudicca and Bah Humbug. Some have moved on - but not too far away - like Jems which has moved just round the corner on to Parkway. Moulsham Street also boasts a few bigger specialist retailers such as The Futon shop and Fired Earth, attracted by the unique character and ambiance of the street.

Moulsham Street escaped the huge redevelopment of Chelmsford back in the 1970's when Chelmsford lost so many of it's historic buildings and so maintains many original buildings going back to Tudor times.
