Despite being one of the smallest English counties, Hertfordshire possesses an enormous range of fine buildings. In this beautiful coffee table book about the county, each city, town and village is covered with interesting facts and some lovely photographs and maps. It covers Berkhamsted Castle, the town’s churches and public buildings, Ashlyns School, Berkhamsted School, the Sayers Almshouses and the Old Town Hall, among others. In Tring it covers the churches, Grim’s Ditch, Market House, the Natural History Museum, Tring Park, Tringford Pumping Station and Pendley Manor. For anyone interested in the place in which we live, this is a fabulous addition to your bookshelf.
