Henham, or Henham-on-the-Hill is a small village near Stansted Airport, located in Uttlesford, Essex. It has a population of around 1200 and used to be a station on the Elsenham to Thaxted branch line. Its local pub is The Cock. The church is called St Mary's.
Henham hosts, in the final weeks of May, a bi-annual 10 kilometre run.
It has an award winning local shop which is run by the community.
Henham is also home to the Saffron Brewery, tucked away on Parsonage Farm. The brewery produces a range of ales including Henham Honey, which uses honey collected on the farm.
Henham is well known for its dragon legend. The legend began with the 1669 pamphlet 'The Flying Serpent or Strange News Out of Essex', which spurred numerous other alleged sightings of the dragon. Today, many signs in the village contain dragon motifs.
