Saffron Walden is a picturesque, medieval town, in north-west Essex. It has a rich heritage of old buildings reflecting its wealth as a rural market town. Established in the Bronze Age, Saffron Walden flourished following Anglo-Saxon occupation and a market has been held here since 1141. Once known as Chipping Walden, Saffron Walden gained its name from the precious saffron crocus it became famous for growing in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Follow the fascinating history of Saffron Walden, and its surrounding villages, in this beautifully illustrated volume that shows how the area has changed over time.
