Archaeological finds have revealed that the area where Haverhill stands has been home to settlements since the stone age. The fertile valley also made the area a useful trade route and location for Roman settlers with many Roman Villas being built nearby.
But the Haverhill we would recognise today dates back to the Anglo-Saxon period where the town’s vibrant market was recorded within the Domesday book.
Since the Civil War
When the English Civil War broke out the town supported the Parliamentarians and locals fought in Cromwell’s army against the King. In the decades before the war, settlers from Haverhill emigrated to America where the town of Haverhill Massachusetts was founded.
The was devastated by a great fire in the 17th century which started at the Swan and spread quickly, destroying much of Haverhill. The town suffered greatly but one significant house from the 16th century survived the blaze. The Tudor building was reportedly given to Anne of Cleves as part of her divorce from Henry VIII and the ‘Anne Of Cleves House’ can still be seen today.
Haverhill was a prominent centre for the production of textiles for centuries and the town grew steadily during the industrial revolution when factories with steam driven looms were built. The population doubled in this period with new schools and houses as the town produced large quantities of clothing for agricultural workers.
By the start of the 20th century, Haverhill was a thriving industrial town, dominated by the Gurteen textile factory. At this time the town had a fine Town Hall and many churches as well as schools and two railway stations.
This prosperity ended with World War II, but after the war Haverhill grew rapidly again as it helped resettle communities from London. This resettlement included the building of new houses and factories in the area and resulted in the population of the town more than doubling over the next decade.
Despite all the changes that Haverhill has been through during its long history, the town retains much of its original charm. Visitors today will find that it’s still a picturesque market town with a bustling high street and market stalls laid out on Fridays and Saturdays.
