English Heritage and historic Essex


Saffron Walden,
CB10 1HR


Forget the traffic and forget the noise. The gently rolling landscape of Essex, sprinkled with rivers and lit by constantly changing East Anglian skies, miles of country lanes, hidden byways, bridleways and public footpaths is best explored by walking or cycling.

Saffron Walden's rich heritage and wealth is reflected in the large number of old buildings
whilst retaining the original medieval street layout. Bridge End, Castle Street, Myddylton Place and Church Street display many timbered houses dating from the 15th century, of which the Youth Hostel and the Old Sun Inn are outstanding examples. Why not follow this trail and discover the hidden gems located in the cobbled streets of this charming town?
