Little Totham

The halls of Little Totham and Rook Hall have their origins in the 12th century and the architecture of this period is seen in the North and South doorways of the parish church which lies adjacent to Little Totham Hall (Farm) in the centre of the parish.

The 12th-century church houses the oldest recorded door in the country (c. AD 1085), and there is a comprehensive history document within the church.

The present main road through the village was originally a track used by smugglers bringing liqueur, silks and other cloths from the River Blackwater to the plains where travellers would exchange them for money.

In Little Totham, on the edge of the River Blackwater and in the fields near Osea Island there is evidence of man dwelling there from as far back as the Bronze Age 6,000 years ago. There is evidence of the smelting of ores using the wood from the extensive forests which covered the area.

The main farms developed in the area in the 11th century and life revolved around these until the development of the dwellings along the smugglers route in the late 16th century. Notably among these is the White Horse (now the White House) which was a pub and boarding house until the beginning of the 20th century.

There are extensive patterns of footpaths across the area which lead to the farms and were developed by farm workers walking to and from work. There has always been a history of itinerant workers both on the farms and in the smuggling trade and these have over the years rested, albeit temporarily, on the Totham plains.

The local pub is The Swan and the historic town of Maldon is approx 6.8 miles and Witham railway station with direct links to London's Liverpool street station is approx 6.7 miles.
