Tour HertfordshireHertfordshire (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) Although so close to London this is still a rural area, with quiet country churches with fine monuments, timber-framed farmhouses, and some splendid country houses, of which the most celebrated is Cecil's Jacobean Hatfield House. At St Albans the remains of Roman Verulamium and the great early Norman abbey speak eloquently of older civilizations. The towns offer intriguing contrasts: Hertford, Bishop's Stortford and Hitchin still have the character of traditional market centres, while the new towns of Stevenage, Hemel Hempstead and Hatfield are important exemplars of planning ideals of the 1950s and 60s. Tour Hertfordshire.

Hertfordshire MurdersHertfordshire Murders In spite of its small size and rural character Hertfordshire has been the location for some of the most infamous and fiendish murders in the history of England. Spanning four centuries, this title contains accounts of many of these crimes, including several never included in a book before. The book draws largely from unused archive material. Among the murders included are the attempt to murder Charles II by a group of renegade publicans, the murder of a reputed witch by an angry village mob and the story of John Thurtell who shot the regency buck William Ware over gambling debts. His execution attracted a crowd of 20,000. Also featured is the last woman to be executed in Hertfordshire, she murdered her sister, an inmate in a lunatic asylum, and the unsolved murder of Ann Noblett whose frozen corpse was discovered in the middle of summer.

Hertfordshire PhotographsHertfordshire A to Z (In Old Photographs S.) Journalist and historian Pamela Shields lives and works in Hertfordshire, and has a passion for the county. Her new book is a compendium of fascinating facts that will be a revelation to many. Home to many 'firsts', such as the first and only British pope and the first garden city, the county has also been home to many famous people, from King Offa to Laurence Olivier, George Orwell, Graham Greene and Henry Moore, all of whom are featured here. Peculiar survivals, such as the Hertfordshire Spike and the Pudding Stone, St Albans Mummers and the Bovingdon Revels, are included, as are curious buildings, puzzling theories, urban myths, local legends, and much more.

Bishops StortfordBishop's Stortford: A History This is an illustrated local history of Bishop's Stortford, a British market town of 34,000 on the banks of the River Stort. The text traces the development of the town from Roman times, when it sat along the Roman road now known as Stane Street, to the post-World War II period.

HertfordshireHertfordshire: London's Country Neighbour (The King's England) "A county as it should be, untouched by the hand of industry". Thus Arthur Mee describes Hertfordshire, dubbing it "London's country neighbour", from the bare Chilterns in the north to the villages now swallowed up by Greater London.

The Gardens at HatfieldThe Gardens at Hatfield The re-creation of the great garden at Hatfield House has been one of the most exciting and closely observed garden enterprises of the last thirty years. Now, at last, it is recorded and displayed in this revelatory book. Sue Snell has been photographing there for years, and with the help of the dowager Marchioness she now presents the fruit of her labours in a book that will excite and amaze all who have an interest in one of Britain's greatest gardens, now once again worthy of its great architectural, botanical and historical heritage.
