Rayleigh is a historic market town and is the main centre of population in the Rochford District. The town has retained much of its traditional character and is a busy shopping centre, well served by bus and train. The word "Rayleigh" is said to derive from two Anglo Saxon words, "Roe", a deer, and "Leigh", a clearing in a forest.
