Waltham Abbey is a market town of about 20,400 people in the Epping Forest District in the southwest of the county of Essex, 24 km (15 miles) north-northeast of London on the Greenwich Meridian, between the River Lea in the west and Epping Forest in the east.
It takes its name from the Abbey Church of Waltham Holy Cross, a scheduled ancient monument that was prominent in the early history of the town. The town is within the large civil parish of Waltham Abbey, which was known as Waltham Holy Cross until 1974. The parish has a town council and is twinned with the German town of Hörstel.

Unfortunately, head injuries are extremely common; every year in the UK alone, over 700,000 people are diagnosed with head injuries. While 90% of these are classed as minor head injuries, 10% of cases are classed as severe. All head injuries have the potential to be serious, so it is important to understand the potential causes and symptoms of head injuries so that you can seek medical attention when it is needed.
Minor head injuries may show no or very few symptoms. It won’t always be necessary to see a doctor, but you should seek immediate medical attention if you spot any of these symptoms:
- Nausea, vomiting or feeling sick;
- Swelling or severe bruising to the head;
- Severe headaches or pain;
- Dizziness or faintness;
- A black eye with no other bruising evident;
- Bleeding of any kind, particularly from the ears;
- Clear fluid from the nose or ears;
- Problems with balance or walking; and
- Unusual behaviour such as irritability or an overwhelming tiredness.
