The Grove Shopping Centre was built in 1988 by property developers Charville Estates Ltd. The 95,000 sq. ft. Shopping Centre is anchored by a 40,000 sq. ft Tesco and has 25 unit shops. The Centre is served by an adjoining 369 space car park which is free to Grove Shopping Centre customers for up to three hours.
The Centre is located in the heart of Witham Town which is a designated conservation area and has a interesting mix of old and new buildings some dating back to the 13th century. The town is twinned with Waldbrol in Germany and has active links with Juterbog, which is near to Berlin and Swiebodize in Poland. Witham was home to author Dorothy L. Sayers, creator of Lord Peter Wimsy, until her death in 1957.
