One of Chelmsford’s most popular suburbs, Moulsham is split into two areas – Old Moulsham and Moulsham Lodge.
Popular with families due to its large stock of houses and good schools, the area sits to the south of Chelmsford city centre.
All of which makes it ideal for those who want easy access to city amenities and transport links for work, but a quieter life away from Chelmsford’s bustling centre.
