Saffron Walden is a picturesque, medieval town, in north-west Essex. It has a rich heritage of old buildings, with over 300 listed, 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 including Audley End, Littlebury, Wendens Ambo and the Chesterfords. Fully illustrated, Saffron Walden & Around Through Time shows how the area has changed over time and is essential reading for those who are interested in the area’s history and heritage.
