Manuden is a village and parish in north-western Essex. It is located around 3½ miles north of Bishop's Stortford, in neighbouring Hertfordshire, and around eight miles south-west of Saffron Walden. The village has its own parish council.[2]

Manuden is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as one of the settlements within Clavering hundred.

Part of Manuden is designated as a conservation area,[3] with several listed buildings in and around the village.[4]

The local church is St Mary the Virgin. A tablet within the church commemorates the Jacobean statesman and diplomat William Wade, who spent his retirement at Battles Hall in the village, and is buried in the church.[2]

There is a primary school in the village.[5] In 2010, Manuden County Primary School topped the league table for English schools at KS2 with all pupils attaining level 5 in both English and maths.[6]

There are several active village organisations, including a local history society, junior football club and a cricket club.[2]
