Windhill

by Willettsworld

The mostly early 19th century houses that now line this wide and picturesque road were originally built as homes for wealthy and professional local people. It was their affluent disposition that allowed them to live here away from the noise and noxious smells of the town's market. Today the market place is no longer noisy, nor are there any bad smells, but Windhill is still a sort after address.

Old Market Town

by Willettsworld

Bishop's Stortford is situated approximately midway between London and Cambridge on the edge of East Hertfordshire's border. Its environs have supported a variety of ancient settlements from Stone Age through to Iron Age, and between the first and early fifth century AD a small Romano-British settlement existed just north of the present town centre – itself established as a settlement by the Saxons soon after they invaded Britain in 449 AD. Little is recorded of the Saxon period locally, only that the Manor of Esterteferd (later corrupted to Stortford) was once owned by a Saxon woman named Eddeva Pulchrima. She sold it around 1060 to the Bishop of London – hence its prefix. The town then grew quickly thanks to an important river crossing and as it became a convenient mid-way stop for travellers journeying between London and the towns and cities of East Anglia. It then, like most towns in England, grew rapidly after the Second World War especially in the 1970s and now has a population of around 35,000. The town centre is full of character in its medieval architecture with some wonderful timber framed buildings and old pubs plus a good museum that partly exhibits artefacts from Africa given that Cecil Rhodes, Bishop's Stortford's most famous son, was born here in 1853. He was the founder of the diamond company De Beers, and was the founder of the state of Rhodesia. All this makes the town well worth a visit as a day out from London.
