Tiptree, one of the largest villages in England with a current population in excess of 9,000, is situated approximately 10 miles from Colchester and close to the A12 trunk road. It is one of 27 wards administered by Colchester Borough council and also has its own Parish Council. Despite its growth over the last 50 years Tiptree is proud of its historical and rural identity. Once part of a huge area of heathland that embraced 16 parishes, Tiptree can still boast the largest fragment of lowland heath in Essex. Tiptree has a busy shopping centre of small, individual shops and notable employers, including internationally famous Wilkin and Sons. It is served by four primary schools and one comprehensive school, which is a centre of sporting excellence.
