Ulting is a small village located in the remote countryside of the county of Essex, England. It shares its borders with Langford and Nounsley, and is part of Maldon.

History[edit]

Ulting was the location of the first sugar beet factory in England,[2] although its useful life was cut short by cheap imports of cane sugar.

Ernest Doe & Sons produced farm machinery in the 1950s and 1960s, including the odd Doe Triple-D tractor.

Church[edit]

All Saints, the village church, has been standing since 1150, with a major restoration taking place in the 1870s. The church was once a place of pilgrimage ranking with Walsingham and other famous shrines.[3] The River Chelmer runs next to the church and through Ulting.

Notable residents[edit]

Humphrey Spender lived in Ulting for many years before his death in 2005.[4]
