Sarratt Byways Revisited

by Philip & Connie Buller

[Authors] 2000

Booklet, 23.5 * 16 cm, 16 pages, and fold out map

 In 1902 Herbert Tompkins published Highways & Byways in Hertfordshire, which describes the county by means of a number of walks. Chapter IV describes a walk from Rickmansworth, through Sarratt and on to Kings and Abbots Langley. This delightful booklet repeats the walk through Sarratt 100 years later, with some small moderns, and some circa 1900, illustrations.
