A market town for over 1,000 years, today the town is a popular shopping centre. Haverhill was recorded in the Domesday survey in 1086, but even before the English and Normans arrived, archaeological evidence shows that both Stone Age man and later the Romans thought this valley a good place to settle.

The town thrived because of its textile industry especially in the 19th century when it became a centre for the making of ‘drabbet’ smocks for agricultural workers. The firm of D Gurteen & Sons established themselves in Haverhill during the 1780’s and in 1856 they built a new factory with 32 power looms driven by steam. The new factory brought expansion and made the town became prosperous, almost doubling in size between 1851 and 1901.

Fire destroyed many of Haverhill’s Medieval buildings in 1665, but two buildings give an insight into how the town would have looked 400-years ago. Cleves House is a substantial manor house and commemorates the fact that Haverhill Manor was part of the marriage settlement between Henry VIII and Anne of Cleves. ‘Weavers’, is a Medieval Hall dating from the 15th century.

After WWII, Haverhill was named an ‘expansion town’ by the Haverhill Urban District Council and Greater London Council, with the population quadrupling between then and now.

The population of Haverhill is 22,010 living in 9,352 homes. The average 4-bed detached property sells for £230,000.
