Bishop’S Stortford - Bishop's Stortford is an attractive ancient market town, with its landmark Corn Exchange overlooking the town square. The Saxons settled around a ford in the town, the Normans built a castle defended by the river, water mills powered flour mills and, in 1769, after the town’s major industry supplying malt by horse-drawn cart to London brewers went into decline because of the poor state of the roads, the Stort was made navigable. New canal basins and maltings were built, barges took over from the carts and the trade was rescued.

The town’s architecture reflects its history with period cottages, Victorian and Edwardian terraces and more modern houses.
