I'm sure that others will have replied by now, but just in case ...
I would recommend the Essex Records Office, in Chelmsford, Wharf Road. If you are driving there is a huge open car park right next to it.
If you are walking from the bus/train station I would allow 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how fast you walk.
If they haven't changed it yet again the link is http://www.essexcc.gov.uk/vip8/ecc/ECCWebsite/display/guideContents/index.jsp?oid=14787
Otherwise go to the Essex County Council home page http://www.essexcc.gov.uk and follow the links for Archives & Museums.
There is a good map there and details of opening time.
Look up SEAX and log in as a guest to see which parish records they hold. The probability is that if they don't have them, nobody does.
You will need either a readers card from another centre, or some ID to get one(free)
