Trains to Cheshunt trundle along the side of Lee Valley Park between the Hertfordshire countryside and the town's residential hub. Unsurprisingly, its pleasant position makes Cheshunt predominately a commuter town servicing London. However, the one-time home of Lotus Cars also has historic significance - Richard Cromwell, Lord Protector of the Commonwealth, died here in 1712. And visitors can get a feel of 16th-century Cheshunt by enjoying a quick half in the Green Dragon Inn, a must-visit 16th-century pub. The station itself dates back to 1846 and the town has a storied railway past. The horse-drawn Cheshunt Railway, which opened in 1825 and linked the town's High Street with the River Lea, is considered the world's first passenger-carrying monorail, having transported children to and from school. Factoid fans will also be interested to know that the station was the main access point for the white-water canoe and kayak slalom during the 2012 London Olympics.
