Local history

The wonderful thing about local history is that there’s always something old to discover and explore. The area all around Waltham is steeped in history. The sheep farmed on the rolling hills were a rich source of income, earning vast sums for local wool-merchants. The nearby Abbey at Croxton was one of the wealthiest religious houses in the region. On these pages we’ll be exploring some of the areas around Waltham. If you can suggest any we should add, please leave a comment below – or get in touch via the contact page.
