Hertford Town Centre

Comments

Hertford has been the county town of Hertfordshire since Saxon times when it was governed by the king's reeves. It is at the confluence of four river valleys: the Rib, Beane and Mimram join the River Lea at Hertford to flow east and then south toward the Thames as the Lee Navigation. The shared valley of the Lea and Beane is called Hartham Common and this provides a large park to one side of the town centre running towards Ware.

The town centre still has its medieval layout with many timber-framed buildings hidden under later frontages, particularly in St Andrew Street
