Harpenden History Tour Paperback / softback
by JOHN COOPER
Part of the History Tour series
In this comprehensively illustrated guide, Harpenden History Tour takes the reader on a nostalgic journey around this quintessential country village in days gone by, coupled with a useful location map showing the various places of historical interest, highlighting the many changes that have taken place over the last 100 years.
In accompaniment with a fascinating selection of old photographs and picture postcards, we are able to admire the lovely parish church of St Nicholas with its tower dating back to 1470, the site of the village pond that, when filled in, housed a large wartime air-raid shelter, and Rothamsted Manor, which was used as a top-secret army intelligence centre intercepting Morse code messages between German Luftwaffe ground stations and airfields.
With so much to see and discover, this guide provides a memorable glimpse into the Harpenden of yesteryear to those who know and love this area.
