Sawbridgeworth station in Hertfordshire, England rests within the Epping Forest District, offering a leafy and green welcome as your train pulls to a stop. The station dates back to 1842, and underwent a minor facelift in 2011, when the platforms were extended to accommodate 12-coach trains. Trains from Sawbridgeworth serve London Liverpool Street and Cambridge. The town owes its affluence to the malt houses that sprang up in the 1800s, and you'll find the very same buildings right outside the station today. Now known as the Maltings, they house The Herts & Essex Antiques centre and a charming little coffee shop. Beyond, to the east of the town you'll find the River Stort offering delightful waterside walks and boat rides. The town centre is equally pleasant, boasting a large conservation area with a mix of Tudor, Stuart and Georgian buildings. The 13th century Great St. Mary's Church is a popular place for brass rubbing enthusiasts.
