MARKS TEY All the Teys, Marks Tey, Little Tey and Great Tey, are within a 10-minute drive of this or Colchester station. Marks Tey has large Seventies estates where you can buy a three-bedroom semi for £185,000 or a four-bedroom detached for £230,000 to £260,000. The Food Company here has raised the game for cooks, supplying well sourced fresh food, with its own bakery, fishmonger and butcher. Little Tey, next door, is also a grazing ground for first- and second-time buyers. Great Tey is a little more remote, with its own village shop, post office and village hall. Coggeshall, a couple of miles from Marks Tey and Kelvedon stations, is more seductive, wonderfully medieval, with old lace-making traditions and a much-loved inn called The Woolpack. It has a regular Thursday market, which sells everything from buttons and WI jam to fruit and veg. A period four-bedroom house might cost from £375,000 to £625,000.
