Introducing Witham, the home of our latest branch
This month we launched our latest office in Witham and as a result we have been spending a great deal of time in the area. While we have had offices throughout Essex and into Greater & Central London for nearly 50 years and have been working in the local area for a number of years, this office represents our first tangible presence in the town.
While getting to know the local area we have been fascinated by the rich history of the town. Here are just some of interesting facts which contribute to Witham’s growing appeal.
Excavations of the Witham Lodge (Ivy Chimneys) area of the town unveiled remains of a Roman temple in the 1970s as well as a pottery kiln. This would have been alongside the main Roman road from Colchester to London and used as a stopover point on the long journey, another notable find during the excavation was a Votive Offering pool in the grounds of the temple, the pool contained several artefacts that would have been offered to the gods.
The parish of Witham appears in the Domesday Book of 1086.
Witham briefly enjoyed a period as an affluent spa town after the discovery of a mineral-bearing spa in the town by Dr Taverner in the 18th century. Witham was also a centre of the wool trade until the decline of the industry in the late 17th century.
And of course from Beresfords point of view there are the many fine properties in the area, for sale and rent including this extended three bedroom link-detached bungalow boasting spacious living accommodation on a generous and established plot with parking for multiple vehicles and access to a garage.
