Hoddesdon has been through several stages in its development, starting life as a stop on the coaching route between London and Cambridge. During the 20th Century, it found a new industrial lease of life with local gravel pits, which have now been filled in to create water parks. In the 21st century it is best known as a London commuter town, taking it back to its roots as a stopping point for modern-day travellers.
As Hoddesdon rediscovers its roots as a home for road and rail commuters, our floor sanding professionals can help residents to rediscover their properties' original features. Parquet floor restoration and sanding wooden floors just two of the ways that our floor sanding services in Hoddesdon can give your home a traditional but high-quality appearance.
Hoddesdon residents and businesses alike can benefit from letting us bring floorboards back to their best, and we take real pride in a job well done. So if your floors are looking stained and grimy, ask us about floor sanding in Hoddesdon and how we can revitalise your valuable original floorboards.
Business owners can bring their premises well and truly up to date, without losing period features; parquet flooring restoration is one great way to do this, as it makes the most of the floorboards you already have laid in your office or retail outlet, to create a stylish, elegant and welcoming environment for customers.
In residential properties, our wood floor restoration and refinishing can give you an as-new wooden floor even if you have no intention of selling your home. Wood floor polishing is an ideal way to complement any redecorating you may be doing in your property, again as an economical alternative to laying a new floor.
Hoddesdon and remains a key resting point for weary 21st Century travellers, this time in the form of a tranquil haven from the buzz of city life for commuters from nearby London. Along the way, it has served several other purposes, including during the mid part of the 20th Century, when Hoddesdon became a useful local source of gravel. As time went on, the gravel resources were depleted, and these days the former pits are filled in and used as water parks and as manmade lakes for water sports and other such pursuits.
With its role as a commuter town, Hoddesdon needs to combine city living with the more rural attractions of Hertfordshire and the Lea Valley. Natural materials such as hardwood floors help to bridge this gap, bringing together a much-loved natural building material, with the kind of highly polished, glossy finish you might expect to see in the finest boardrooms of the City.
Hoddesdon itself has a thriving retail community, with several high street shops and the Tower Centre shopping mall, where independent traders and multinational brands sit side by side with restaurants and pubs, giving local residents everything they could need. For businesses trying to compete in this climate, a freshly polished hardwood floor provides a strong basis for retail displays, or for tables and chairs to be placed upon, to create an appealing shopping or dining environment.

Did you know about Hoddesdon?
Hoddesdon is in the English county of Hertfordshire, situated in the Lea Valley. The town grew up as a coaching stop on the route between Cambridge and London. It is located 4 miles (6.4 km) southeast of Hertford, 5 miles (8.0 km) north of Waltham Cross and 11 miles (18 km) southwest of Bishop's Stortford. 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.
Hoddesdon was situated about 20 miles (32 km) north of London on the main road to Cambridge and to northern towns and cities. The road forked in the centre of the town, with the present High Street dividing into Amwell Street and Burford Street, both leading north to Ware. From an early date there were a large number of inns lining the streets to serve the needs of travellers. A market charter was granted to Robert Boxe, lord of the manor, in 1253.
A new chapel of ease, dedicated to St Paul, was built in 1762. This was subsequently rebuilt and enlarged and in 1844 become the parish church when Hoddesdon was created a separate ecclesiastical parish. Previously the town was divided between the two parishes of Broxbourne and Great Amwell. The boundary between the two parishes ran through an archway in the town's High Street. When this building was demolished in the 1960s, a specially inscribed stone was set into the pavement marking the historic boundary. In place of St Katharine's Chapel a new clock house was built.
