Berkhamsted Through Time

Availability: In stock

Author: Berkhamsted Local History & Museum Society

Berkhamsted is a market town in the Dacorum Hundred. The Norman castle, which still belongs to the Duchy of Cornwall today, and Berkhamsted Town Hall, opened in 1860, together epitomize the character of the town. The castle, although a ruin for several hundreds of years, attracts thousands of visitors annually as a place of recreation and historical interest, and reminds us of the town's importance in years gone by. The Town Hall, with its thriving market, dating back to Saxon times, and its meeting rooms, is the hub of Berkhamsted's flourishing community. It was saved from demolition by a band of independent citizens in the 1970s. The 'homestead among the hills' also has a hinterland of fine countryside. All of this and much more is brought to life in this fascinating tour of Berkhamsted Through Time.
