Important Visitor Information

Manor Street is currently undergoing essential gas maintenance in the road to replace old iron gas mains with more durable plastic pipes.

Due to these works taking place in the road there has been a road closure along the one-way system entrance for two weeks starting the 18 July. If you are traveling to Braintree Museum you must follow the diversion sign. You can still access Braintree Museum as Manor Street Car Park will continue to open, this can also be accessed by following the diversion signs. In addition, we would like to support our neighboring shops and make you aware they are open as usual too during this period.

Works are being carried out “to ensure we continue to provide safe and reliable gas supplies to local businesses and residents.” National Grid gas Plc
