Hertfordshire (abbreviated Herts) is a ceremonial and non-metropolitan county in the East of England. The county town is Hertford. The county is one of the Home Counties and lies inland, bordered by Greater London, Bucks, Beds (with the borough of Luton), Cambs and Essex. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing, office moves and house clearance in the Hertfordshire area.
Hertfordshire was originally the area assigned to a fortress constructed at Hertford under the rule of Edward the Elder in 913 AD. The name Hertford is derived from the Anglo-Saxon heort ford, meaning deer crossing (of a watercourse). Hertfordshire’s name first appears in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 1011 AD.
The area’s history dates back to the Middle Stone Age. It was first farmed during the Neolithic ages and permanent habitation appeared at the beginning of the Bronze Age. This was then followed by tribes settling in the area during the Iron Age. Following the Roman conquest of Britain in 43 AD, Hertfordshire quickly adapted to the Roman way of life, with one of the new towns, Verulamium, becoming the third largest town in Roman Britain.
As London grew, Hertfordshire became conveniently close to the English capital, with much of the area owned by the nobility and aristocracy. This patronage helped to boost the local economy. However, the greatest boost to Hertfordshire came via the Industrial Revolution, after which the population rose dramatically. In 1903, Letchworth became the world’s 1st garden city and Stevenage became the 1st town to redevelop under the New Towns Act 1946.
In 1965 (under the London Government Act 1963) East Barnet Urban District and Barnet Urban District were abolished, with their area transferred to Greater London, forming part of the present day London Borough of Barnet. At the same time, the Potters Bar Urban District of Middlesex was transferred across to Hertfordshire.
In 2012 Waltham Cross, within the borough of Broxbourne, will be hosting the canoe and kayak slalom events of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
Since proposals put forward by The Welwyn Garden Heritage Trust, town-planner Andrés Duany has suggested that designated “Garden Villages” should be built within Hertfordshire to relieve some of the pressure for new homes, with perhaps a 3rd Garden City to follow.
