Waltham Abbey is a historic and beautiful market town in the county of Essex at the very far North of London and on the edge of Epping Forest. The Abbey church is well worth a visit when you can, and the grounds contain the burial site of King Harold.
The Club has been operating since April 1990
WAHS was founded in 1953 to research the history and genealogy of the ancient market town of Waltham Abbey in Essex, England. People far and wide have become members over the years, and together we learn new things about our town and its people all the time. We have borne many success stories over the last half-century.
Waltham Abbey Residents Association was formed in October 2008 in response to the Government's decision regarding potential permanent Gypsy and Traveller sites in Waltham Abbey Parish.
The Committee consists of 12 residents who stepped forward following a public meeting in the Town Hall.
Over 600 people attended a second Public Meeting and gave them their mandate to act for the good of the community on this matter.
Their aim is to put the interests of the community first, above politics and the bureaucracy of political correctness that has put Waltham Abbey in this situation.
