Bishop's Stortford is an historic market town and civil parish in the district of East Hertfordshire in the county of Hertfordshire in England. It is just west of the M11 motorway on the county boundary with Essex, and is the closest large town to London Stansted Airport in the London commuter belt. Bishop's Stortford is 27mi north east of Charing Cross in central London and 35mi from Liverpool Street station where the railway line from Cambridge to London, which passes through the town, terminates. The town has a population of 38,202.HistoryNothing of significance is known of the Bishop's Stortford area until it became a small Roman settlement on the Roman road of Stane Street between Braughing and Colchester. After the Roman Empire broke down, the settlement was abandoned in the 5th century.A new Saxon settlement grew up on the site, named Steort-ford, meaning "tail ford", "ford at tongues of land". In 1060, William, Bishop of London, bought the Stortford manor and estate for eight pounds, leading to the town's modern name.
