Great Waltham — also known as Church End — is a village and a parish in the Chelmsford District, in the county of Essex. It has a guildhall called Great Waltham Guildhall. It is a few miles away from the city of Chelmsford. There is a large house called Langley's which has existed for over 300 years and is surrounded by a deer park, although the parkland is actually used for cattle grazing.

The parish also consists of the village of Ford End, and four hamlets – Howe Street, Littley Green, North End and Broads Green.

Great Waltham is on Walthambury Brook. It has a primary school, a post office, two churches and a few pubs. It used to have a bakery, a garage and a small fire station but they closed down in the late 1900s. The village of Little Waltham exists about a mile away.
