1 Day as a Tourist in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire | UK Travel Vlog

Welcome to 1 Day as a Tourist in Bishops Stortford!

In my latest UK Travel Vlog I visit this historic market town, beginning at Waytemore Castle with a chat about its medieval history. My next step is a walk along the ancient River Stort, the key to the town’s thriving past success as a Navigated River, especially for the Malting Industry.

A short walk later I arrive at South Mills Arts for a fascinating insight into the town’s past and incredible music heritage stemming from the famous Rhodes Centre! Having departed South Mills It was only fair that I dropped into the little arts workshop for a lesson in throwing pottery from Jessica before discovering remnants of the Town’s Maltings within ‘Millars three’

Finally I explore the town center and some great local characters before ending my trip at South Street Pantry for a superb bit of cake and tea!

Bloody Awesome!

    I think the tunnels are a myth, there are similar stories in Harlow. I'm yet to meet someone that's actually been in them!

  2. Greg Beard

    The tunnels run to the mound through the town to The George Hotel and then up to St Mary's Catholic School. They've all been blocked up now though.

  3. Jo Atkins-Linnell

    Great video. Live in Stansted so been to Stortford countless times but still learnt new things!!!

  4. Pauline Goldsmith

    PG Tips There are tunnels from police station to the George Hotel 🏨 everyone looks for the grey lady !!!! If you were here your Stortfordian 😂👏🙏🏻🇬🇧

  5. allison remzi

    My mum used to work in what is now Coopers, and i believe the tunnels used to run underneath here. I remember her telling me tales how she saw the Grey lady in these tunnels when she was worked there!

  6. David Stevens / A sideways look

    Coopers store has a long history. Under the ground floor at the corner with The Star pub was the town jail – its still there but not accessible.

    I was born and bred in B/S . Left when I was 39. I didn't see you talk to anyone who was born and bred there also and of a more mature age!

  8. The English Englishman

    Grew up in Stortford, moved away a couple years ago, but a lovely town which I still go to at least once a week. Just went to the remembrance day service there today and it was fantastic, must've been 1,000 people or so that came out.

  9. Michael & Julie Claridge

    Love your video's. I do have to say when I listen to you, you do remind me of this dog

    – (SORRY ;-D)

  10. Robin Franklin

    This was great!! I'm a student in America now but I'm from stortford and this was the perfect antidote to missing home! Also can confirm I've been in a blocked-off section of the tunnels, one of the houses up on windhill has a ladder down – so claustrophobic!!! Thanks so much for this awesome video! 🙂
