High Ongar is a village and civil parish in the County of Essex, England. It is located a mile north-east of Chipping Ongar, 8 miles west of Chelmsford and 6 miles north-west of Brentwood.
The village of High Ongar has existed since the beginning of the 17th century, although in the Middle Ages it was probably no more than a tiny hamlet. The oldest surviving house in the village is the timber-framed and weather-boarded building immediately east of the church, known as Post Office Cottages. This dates from the late 16th or early 17th century and may have been built as the rectory. Part of it was at one time used as a "lock-up".
