The town of Sawbridgeworth was an important agricultural area, at the time of the Domesday Book. Most of its surviving buildings, however are Georgian and there is an excellent introduction to those in Bell Street on a noticeboard at the car park entrance. The Bell pub obviously gave the street its name. The church and 17th century Church House are of interest. The section of the Stort along which you walk was made navigable in 1769. Part of the current Pishiobury Mansion was built in the late 16th century, though an earlier building had occupied the site. The building you see today has been altered and added to, partly as a result of fire damage in the latter part of the 18th century.
