Waltham Cross is a suburban former village and now a town in the south of the Borough of Broxbourne in Hertfordshire 12 miles (20 km) north by north-east of Charing Cross in central London. It is in the metropolitan Place of London, the Greater London Urban Area. Three of the twelve high ornate stone monuments named Eleanor crosses (carved and put happening within about three years of the death of Eleanor of Castile, wife of Edward I) are intact, one here, one at Geddington and one at Hardingstone. It was the abandoned one expected by a foreigner, a distinct Nicholas who had beyond one toponymic surname.
The town has a modest advertisement centre, similar to many small towns of its type, and is shortly north of the M25 motorway and the London Borough of Enfield. Waltham Cross takes in the works a south-eastern corner of its county. The Waltham Cross publicize town stretches to the neighbouring town of Cheshunt and a small part of Enfield.
