Overview of Lexden, Essex, Essex

Lexden is a suburb of Colchester, Essex, England. It was formerly a village, and has previously been called Lessendon, Lassendene and Læxadyne. Lexden is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Lexden is approximately one mile west of central Colchester. It is home to a public house, the Crown; and St Leonard's Church. The Leonard in question is Saint Leonard of Noblac, the patron saint of prisoners. Lexden's original name, Læxadyne, is Old English for "Leaxa's valley". It is referred to as the "Hundred of LASSENDENE" in the Domesday Book. It is now cut into two halves by a modern bypass, Spring Lane. Within the space of a few hundred yards there are two 400 year old watermills, (both now private residences), a 100 year old iron bridge over the river Colne, two local nature reserves and several interesting walks.
