Bishop's Stortford Certificated Locations
Bishop's Stortford is a town dating back to Roman times, with its name partly being derived from its position as a crossing point on the River Stort, which marks the boundary between Hertfordshire and Essex. The rest comes from the fact that the Bishop of London resided at Waytemore Castle in the Middle Ages, with this ruined fortification being one of the most historic buildings in the town.
Today, Bishop's Stortford offers easy access to London and Cambridge, while visitors can also enjoy walking along the Stort Navigation, with the river acting like a canal with its own lock system. To the south of the town, it is even possible to catch a glimpse across the river of 'Beckingham Palace' - the mansion previously owned by David and Victoria Beckham.
