Canon Windows’ composite doors provide many of the benefits of traditional wood doors while avoiding all the problems.
These doors will look as good as any timber frame and door; however, they will not split, rot, crack or swell and you will never need to re-paint them. Our composite doors are installed within their frame to give a unified appearance. Read More about Composite Doors
The Borough of Cheshunt
The town name comes from the Old English name (as recorded in the Domesday Book) for the area, Cestrehunt, which probably refers to a “castle, erected by the Romans”, the word cestre (along with the form ceastre), or even its modern forms, chester and caster being derived from the Latin castrum meaning “fort”. This is commemorated in the arms of the former Cheshunt urban district council.
Cheshunt was a settlement on Ermine Street, the main Roman road leading north from London. This origin was investigated by the television archaeology programme Time Team. Before the Norman Conquest, the manor of Cheshunt was held by Eddeva the Fair, but William I granted it to Alan of Brittany. The parish church of St Mary the Virgin was first recorded in a charter of 1146, but was entirely rebuilt between 1418 and 1448 with a three-stage tower topped by an octagonal turret.
Cheshunt was also the location of the Cheshunt Railway. this horse-drawn line was the first passenger-carrying monorail and the first railway line to be built in Hertfordshire.
