Towiepedia: The Only Way Is Essex
Love it or hate it, TOWIE is here to stay. All the glitz and glamour of a small provincial town "Brentwood" which in the 1990's was voted the most boring town in England, not helped by "bored town" being its anagram.
The original name of Brentwood was Burntwood which people think came from a clearing in the surrounding forest created by a fire, indeed, that is the name on some old 18th-century maps. It really started growing as a major coaching stop on The Roman Road between London and Colchester. Horses were rested every ten miles and Brentwood being 20 miles from London, would have been the second stop on visitors to East Anglia. However, it has now become the first stop for millions of Towie fans who descend on Brentwood every weekend, to share in the delights of The Towie television crew.
