Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Romford is an old market town, formerly in Essex but now in Greater London.

It developed along the Great Road, the old Roman road between London and Colchester. There was a small Roman camp here named Durolitum.

St. Edward's Church in the Market Place is a Victorian replacement by John Johnson for an earlier church.

The brewery in the town was featured on TV advertisements, to the tune of "There'll Always Be a Romford", and Ian Dury's "Razzle in My Pocket" is set in South Street.

People born in Romford include Tony Adams, England footballer; Johnny Leach, England table tennis player; Richard Madeley, TV presenter; and Francis Quarles, 17th century poet.

Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby is available to lead Guided Walks around Romford for groups.
