A short history

Nowadays, Waltham Abbey is a relatively quiet spot, but hides a more dramatic past.  The tale goes that in 1035, a black marble crucifix was found in Somerset.  When they attempted to take the cross to one of the leading monasteries, the oxen refused to budge until the name Waltham was mentioned, whereupon they miraculously set off towards the town.  The cross was housed in a local church, where it was said to have healing powers, reputedly even curing King Harold of paralysis.

The reputation of the cross lead to a grand Abbey being built on the site.  A town grew up around the Abbey and was given a charter by Richard I to hold markets and fairs.  The Charter Market continues to this day on Tuesday of each week.

The Abbey was lost when Henry VIII ordered the dissolution of the monasteries, but Waltham Abbey continued to flourish, growing to the town seen today.

 

Property

Waltham Abbey has a mix of period country houses, town-centre cottages and Victorian properties, along with a good supply of bungalows and modern detached, semi-detached and terrace homes.

The town expanded greatly after the Second World War, with the Ninefields Estate built in the Sixties and Seventies, and Abbeyfields in the early Nineties on the site of Honey Lane Hospital.  On the A121, the road that links Waltham Abbey with Waltham Cross, there are modern flats.

If you are interested in putting your house on the market, our Sales Agents will be pleased to arrange a home valuation.  Those looking to purchase property in Waltham Abbey can discuss their needs with our local experts and arrange viewings at suitable properties.  Alternatively, if you are a Landlord considering letting your property, or you are looking to rent within the Waltham Abbey area, our Lettings Agents are on hand to support you.

Transport links

Trains run from Waltham Cross (zone 7) to Liverpool Street in less than 30 minutes, with access to the tube at Tottenham Hale.  Central Line services are available from Loughton (zone 6), about five miles away. Access to the M25 is straightforward and quick.

 

Shopping, eating and drinking

Waltham Abbey has a quaint high street, with unique local shops and cafes nestled alongside each other.  Its twice-weekly markets attract tourists and locals alike.  For a more modern shopping centre, head to nearby Waltham Cross.

At one point, the town was mentioned in the Guinness Book of Records as having the highest concentration of pubs in the country and you’ll certainly find plenty of choice in the centre of town, many with atmospheric timber frames and cosy nooks and crannies in which to relax.

 

Things to do

Waltham Abbey is on the edge of open countryside and has the rivers, streams and canals of the Lee Valley Regional Park to the west and Epping Forest to the east.  In Waltham Abbey itself, you’ll find Abbey Gardens and Cornmill Meadows, a sanctuary for dragonflies and damselflies.

Lee Valley offers everything from water sports and orienteering to farm visits with the children, so is great for the whole family.  It was also the site for the canoe slalom events in the 2012 Olympic Games.  The £31 million facility is now used for world-class events, and is open to the public to ride the rapids in rafts or canoes.

There is a free Parkrun on Saturdays, popular with runners and joggers of all ages, in Gunpowder Park.

The Epping Forest District Museum in Sun Street has had a recent facelift and is a fascinating place to explore.  For cinema fans, the town council runs screenings in the Town Hall.

The Royal Gunpowder Mills is one of three Royal Gunpowder Mills in the United Kingdom, and has survived virtually intact, with 21 buildings of major historical importance.  In operation for over 300 years, the site began by producing gunpowder, but moved into developing nitro-based explosives from the 1850's.  Shortly after World War II it became a Defence Research Establishment.  Today it is a great place for families to explore the secret history of explosives, with interactive exhibitions and science shows.

Very Professional & Timely

I would recommend Kings Estate agents to anyone looking for a hassle free and professional experience when moving.

I am extremely happy with my letting experience thanks to Leanna from the Chingford branch.. I was probably her fussiest client but Leanna never lost enthusiasm whilst showing me property after property. I found the friendly no pressure approach she takes to be very appropriate as i have had Estate Agents press me for a decision too quick in the past.

The customer service I received from Leanna was also outstanding because she kept me updated every step of the way during the letting procees making sure I was well informed and knew everything I needed about the property prior to making my offer.

Many thanks Leanna!

Competent, helpful & friendly staff

I found the staff to be very helpful, accommodating and polite. I was particularly pleased with the fact that my needs were assessed and other properties offered as a matter of course. Although none of the recommendations have been suitable as yet, there is one other that we might consider.
