Places-People-History

Availability: In stock

A–Z of Letchworth Garden City delves into the history of the first garden city in the world, which was founded in Hertfordshire in 1903 as the brainchild of social reformer Ebenezer Howard. It highlights well-known town landmarks, famous residents and digs beneath the surface to uncover some of the lesser-known facts about Letchworth and its hidden gems. The principles upon which the town was planned, which was to mix the urban and rural with green spaces around housing and separate zones for industry, are still in evidence today, as is the first roundabout in Britain.

This fascinating A–Z tour of Letchworth Garden City’s history will appeal to all those with an interest in this part of Hertfordshire.
