Halstead lies near Colchester and Sudbury, in the Colne Valley, a county in Essex in the East of England. Essex stretches from the eastern fringes of Greater London along the Thames estuary with Hertfordshire to the west, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire to the north. A traditional rural and costal escape from the capital, with seaside tourist towns such as Clacton on Sea and Southend-on-Sea on its 350 miles of coastline and landscapes immortalised by John Constable in his paintings.

A high proportion of the population, especially in the south, work outside the county, commuting to London and elsewhere by rail and by road. Industry is largely limited to the south of the county, with the majority of the land elsewhere being given over to agriculture. Harlow is a centre for electronics, science and pharmaceutical companies.
