The local area guide to living In Waltham Cross

The town of Waltham Cross can be found in the south east of Hertfordshire, and is actually part of the Greater London Urban Area, despite being on the exterior of Greater London. The name Waltham Cross comes from the historic Eleanor Cross, a stone monument with large crosses that marks the memory of Eleanor of Castile, King Edward I’s wife. It is only one of three surviving monuments out of a series of 12, which were first built around 1291.

Between 1894 and 1974, Waltham Cross was part of the Cheshunt Urban District, but it then joined up with nearby district counties to create the Borough of Broxbourne. The River Lea towards the east, flows all the way through South East London, where it eventually joins the River Thames. The town’s most notable resident is likely Anthony Trollope, a hugely successful Victorian novelist, who lived in Waltham Cross between 1859 and 1871, during which time he penned 26 novels.
