Schools in Waltham Abbey

Waltham Abbey, a historic market town set within the Epping Forest district of Essex, boasts a rich past connected to its prominent Abbey, Royal connections, and diverse heritage. The town has grown around the ancient Abbey Church of Holy Cross and St. Lawrence, renowned as King Harold's burial site and recognized as the last monastery dissolved by Henry VIII. Its picturesque center features 16th-century timber-framed buildings and a unique 'Art Nouveau' Town Hall. The Charter Market continues to this day, as does its association with notable figures, including King Harold, Henry II, and Henry VIII. Modern Waltham Abbey has diversified economically with the arrival of a range of manufacturing companies within industrial estates, and the redevelopment of the former Royal Gunpowder Mills site into residential and community spaces. The town is surrounded by extensive countryside, including nature reserves, parks, and Epping Forest, which provide ample opportunities for recreational activities and tourism. Waltham Abbey is situated near the M25 motorway junction 26 and is accessible via various bus routes and a train station nearby.
