An Introduction to Hertfordshire

Hertfordshire is one of the Home Counties and although its county town is Hertford, it also has the historic cathedral city of St Albans and other older towns such as Royston, Ware and Baldock. More famously perhaps are the global examples of town planning of the earlier 20th century namely Letchworth Garden City and Welwyn Garden City. Despite its proximity to London and containing major commuter towns it is a predominantly rural county and the pre-eminence of deer in the county's crest can still be justified today.

Things to do in Hertfordshire

Hertfordshire is home to many historic structures including Knebwoth House, the former home of Edward Lytton, St Albans Cathederal, where Alban the first matyr is buried and at Perry Green the Henry Moore foundation with exhibits in the artist's house. St Albans town also has a large number of museums, from the Roman town to the history of the surrounding area.

Other attractions to visit include - 

Benington Lordship Gardens - Spread over seven acres surrounding a fine Georgian manor house with remains of a Norman Castle and moat. Visitors of all ages will enjoy the peaceful location, a haven for wildlife that offers unspoilt views over the surrounding Hertfordshire countryside.

History 

Hertfordshire History

Hertfordshire/

Historically Hertfordshire was the site of a number of uprisings against the Crown, particularly in the First Barons' War, the Peasants' Revolt, the Wars of the Roses and the English Civil War. The county has a rich intellectual history, and many writers of major importance, from Geoffrey Chaucer to Beatrix Potter, have connections there.

Hertfordshire has been populated for about 12,000 years, since the Mesolithic period. Settlement continued through the Neolithic period. Although occupied, the area had a relatively low population in the Neolithic and early Bronze Age. In the Iron Age, a Celtic tribe called the Catuvellauni occupied Hertfordshire. Three Roman Roads run through Hertfordshire: Watling Street, Ermine Street and the Icknield Way. These are three of the "four highways" of medieval England. 

Hertfordshire had a conflicted relationship with the King during the High Middle Ages. Like most counties in the south-east, most of Hertfordshire was in private ownership. Hertford Castle was used as a gaol for a series of important captives during the Hundred Years' War. This was actually a series of separate wars that lasted a total of 116 years, between 1337 and 1453. Three important battles of the Wars of the Roses took place in Hertfordshire.
