Waltham Cross is a town in Hertfordshire. It is immediately north of both the M25 and the London Borough of Enfield. The town is within the borough of Broxbourne, the metropolitan area of London and the Greater London Urban Area, with Chestnut to the north, Waltham Abbey to the east and Enfield to the south. Waltham Cross is the most southeasterly town within the county of Hertfordshire.

History

Waltham Cross formed part of the ancient parish of Chestnut in the Hertford hundred of Hertfordshire. It then formed part of the Cheshunt Urban District from 1894 to 1974. In April of 1974 the town together with Cheshunt and the Hoddedson urban district councils merged to form the Borough of Broxbourne.

The centre of the town has one of three surviving medieval Eleanor crosses; these were a memorial commemorating the over-night resting place of the coffin of Eleanor Castile, wife of King Edward I, on its processional journey from Lincoln to Westminster Abbey in 1290. The town takes its name from the Cross, which stands in its centre.

London Overground runs the station and its services. Many London Buses routes terminate and link to services further out of London via the bus station in the town centre.
