Town Mayor, Councillor James de Vries, unveiled the Saffron Walden interpretation board which tells the story of the town’s relationship with the saffron crocus.  The board, which is located on the side of the Town Hall, explains how the crocus brought employment and prosperity to the town.

There are plans being put in place to hold a Saffron Day in the town on 16 October.
