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. The village of Little Waltham is located about a mile away.

The parish was part of the Chelmsford Rural District from 1894 until 1974, and since 1974 it has been located in the Chelmsford District or Borough.
