Discovering Hertford


Hertford Civic Society


Paperback, 48 pages

Dicker Mill, on an island on the River Lea

This is one of those wonderful "historical walks" booklets which provide an  invaluable guide for the visitor to a town - or the inhabitant who has, up till now, has taken the old buildings for granted. The book includes good walking maps, and many photographs although the printing method has not always done these justice.

Hertford Castle Walk: The Castle (back to 12th century)

A Quick Look: Highlights for the visitor with only a short time to spare

St Andrews Street - West Street Walk: Includes site of a mill mentioned in the Domesday Book, the former verger's house (from about 1450) and many 18th century buildings.

Old Cross - Fore Street Walk: Many 16th, 17th and 18th century buildings identified. The Friends Meeting House, built in 1669, is said to be the oldest surviving example in the world.

The River Walk: Includes the 16th/17th century Lombard House where Chauncy lived, and Dicker Mill.
