Dating back to Saxon times and recorded in the Domesday Book, Sawbridgeworth is predominantly a residential town home to around 8500 people and is popular with commuters due to its mainline railway station connection to London Liverpool Street Station.
Sawbridgeworth with its rich farming land attracted many aristocratic families and soon became the wealthiest village of its time in the county. With wealth came the estates and manors within, such as Pishiobury and Hyde Hall. Prosperity also came from the local maltings, owned by George Fawbert and John Barnard; in 1839 they set up the Fawbert and Barnard charity to fund local children and their education, funding a local infant school that still exists today.
"I have been very impressed with Pestell throughout the sale of our house with a very professional and friendly service. They provided some very sound advice up front, organised a series of viewings very quickly and then stayed close to help move the chain to Completion. I would use Pestell again without hesitation."
