I'm unhappy to hear about this. If the Mills go it will rip the heart out of Waltham Abbey and the historic legacy of the town. This development needs to be stopped right now.

As a volunteer at the Mills I think this development spells the end of the visitor attraction. As the town's greatest asset it will be devastating to see it go. There are other ways to keep the site open but the powers that be are not interested.

I visit the place every year with my family and we love it for the nature and wildlife. Where will all the deer go? Will they be culled? What about the other animals that live there?
