Bishop's Stortford is a historic market town in the county of Hertfordshire in England. The town took its origin from, and has grown up around, the ford over the river, which is now known as the Stort. Archaeological evidence shows that the Romans had several roads across the area, at least one of which crossed the river in the vicinity of what are now known as the Town Meads.
In the days of stage coach travel, Bishops Stortford was a staging post on routes from London to Cambridge and London to Newmarket. Many of the old coaching inns are still evident in the town today.
The town centre has a traditional collection of national stores and local shops in a motley array of old buildings. One of the oldest businesses is Tissimans and Sons, tailors and outfitters, established in the 16th century. They occupy particularly historic premises. There are regular street markets for browsing on Thursdays and Saturdays.
