Peter had to go to see some customers in the south east so I went along with him. We stayed in Essex overnight so I was able to do a couple of branches of Waterstones. The first was in Romford – the store here is in a modern shopping centre and set over two floors.
Romford holds an open air market three days a week. It is one of the UK’s oldest markets, having been granted a charter by Henry VIII in 1247.
Behind the market is the Anglican parish Church dedicated to Edward the Confessor (confusingly there is a Catholic church of the same name in Romford!) – it has a couple of beautiful, modern, stained glass windows but sadly I haven’t been able to find out any information about them.
