Little Berkhamsted

A History of a Hertfordshire Village

Gerald Millington

Little Berkhamsted Local History Group, 1981

A5 Booklet, 60 pages, with maps and pictures


This is a very useful book, which is the result of a class run by the Hertfordshire County Council along the lines of the earlier W.E.A. local histories of a number of Hertfordshire Towns.

There are some very useful maps and some pictures and there are many names, dates and places mentioned in the text, the only problem being the lack of an index.

For a sample extract see The Old Manor House.
