Being situated on the river Lea offers residents the access to some very pretty riverside scenery where children can feed the ducks and swans, whilst for those for those seeking peace and quiet, the Abbey Gardens provide the ideal spot for a touch of serenity
The busy hub of the town has a pretty cobbled high street, lined with a great variety of shops, pubs, and cafes.
In Market Square you can buy Tony’s Pie & Mash, apparently once a big favourite of the footballer David Beckham!
