Originally the location for a Roman settlement, followed by the Saxons, the town probably derives its name from Higham, a high hamlet or hill dwelling, and Ferrers from William de Ferrers, a 13th century Lord of the Manor. Gaining its Charter in 1251, it was the oldest borough in the county prior to the 1973 boundary changes. Higham Ferrers was once the site of a castle, but although little remains of this today, the town retains much medieval architecture, including a beautiful main street of stone built houses and a traditional market square. St Mary’s Church, with its magnificent spire, is a splendid feature of the town, and the historic Bede House and Chantry Chapel are nearby.
Today, an interesting mix of shops, pubs and restaurants are situated in the town centre and a Farmers’ Market, held on the last Saturday of each month, adds to the wonderful array of produce on offer. Other amenities include a fine range of parks and open spaces, a library, schools, doctors and dentists, while the local community supports many clubs, societies and activities covering a host of interests.
