History Walks in Walden

A fully-descriptive and illustrated guide to historic rambles in and around the Town and Parish of Saffron Walden, and its adjoining Parish of Sewards End, as well as walks from Audley End Village and Little Walden.

This promises to become the essential companion for exploring the town and its rural surroundings, some of which are under threat of future development - by exploring the local countryside, and describing the many facets of its history and wildlife, the author underlines the need to preserve the historic landscapes of Saffron Walden.

With 180 pages, over 150 contemporary photographs and historic maps, the book enables walkers to see how the town and its hinterland have evolved over millennia.

It is equally suited to 'armchair travellers', and will provide a good read for all those who love Saffron Walden, widely recognised as the most beautiful town in Essex, set in a beautiful landscape of ancient countryside.

Note: Jacqueline Cooper, a historian from Clavering, is Editor of the Saffron Walden Historical Journal, and author of several books, including The Well-ordered Town and Discover Walden. A signing session will be arranged at Saffron Walden Library during February. The books are on sale at the Tourist Information Centre in Saffron Walden or via email:



The route directions in this book were extensively checked by Peter Cooper, author of Discover Uttlesford who will be organising some Saffron Walden walks at intervals during 2014 as part of the Uttlesford series he has been leading - if you would like to go on the mailing list for notification of dates of these walks please email
