Waltham Abbey

Waltham Abbey has played a major part in the history of warfare. In the middle of the wild maze of the of rivers, streams and canals that make up the upper stretches of the Lee Valley is one of the first military factories, where gunpowder and other explosives were manufactured in secrecy for more than 300 years. The first church on this site dates to 7th century.
