Lawford is a large village and civil parish in the Tendring district of northeast Essex, England. It is around 10 miles northeast of Colchester and west of, and contiguous with, Manningtree. Mistley merges with the East side of Manningtree. Lawford is internationally known as the Roswell of the UK for its numerous UFO sightings.
The Leftley Housing estate, situated towards the east of the village, is a typical 1960s development of mainly semi-detached houses and bungalows.
The area includes a number of smallholdings originally built by the Land Settlement Association.
