Chigwell has a reputation for its homes being as well-groomed as the people who live in them especially in the so-called golden triangle.
This well-groomed reputation has also been helped by the fact that many high profile sportsmen have lived here. Spurs players trained here until last year, and Leyton Orient’s training ground is in the town. Perhaps Chigwell’s most famous resident who also happens to be a lifelong Spurs fan Lord Alan Sugar also help keep up its fine reputation.
Lord Sugar not only has a mansion here but he also owns Sheesh, a Turkish restaurant, in Chigwell village, the half-timbered building is one of Chigwell’s oldest. The building formerly the King’s Head dates from the 17th century and was the model for The Maypole in Charles Dickens’ novel Barnaby Rudge. Dickens was a frequent visitor to Chigwell and described Chigwell as ‘the finest place on earth’.
