Hertfordshire, one of the Home Counties close to the capital, features some spectacular countryside including the chalk escarpment fringes of the Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and many beautiful valleys including the Lee and the Colne.

In ‘50 Gems of Hertfordshire’, local author Abigail Hamilton-Thompson explores the unique locations that make the county special and the many breathtaking views in the unspoiled countryside. She investigates the hidden delights in historic towns such as Ware, Royston and the city of St. Albans. From nature reserves to Roman Verulamium, churches to caves, watermills to windmills and the geological rarity that is Hertfordshire Puddingstone, readers will venture on a journey of discovery around the treasures of the county.

Among the other places featured are some of Hertfordshire's stately homes and favourite landmarks, together with its scenic forests and footpaths. This is a book that will appeal to residents and visitors alike.
