Hoddesdon is situated in the Lea Valley. The town grew up as a coaching stop on the route between Cambridge and London. At its height during the 18th century, more than 35 coaches a day would pass through the town. It saw a boom in the mid 20th century as gravel was extracted from the area to be exhausted by the 1970s. The lakes and water pits left behind have been used for local leisure amenities.
