Hertfordshire
Hertfordshire

Hertfordshire is a county that was traditionally made up of pastoral farmland, although some of this seems to be slowly disappearing as London continues its gradual sprawl outwards.

Nevertheless, Hertfordshire is still beautiful to travel around and offers woods and green fields at every turn as well as the stunning central town of St Albans with its Georgian architecture and glut of Roman remains.

Bordered by London to the south, Essex to the east, Buckinghamshire to the west, Cambridgeshire to the north-east and Bedfordshire to the north, Hertfordshire is one of the UK's smallest counties but it seems to contain a disproportionate amount of England's historic heritage.

Hertford itself is packed with historic buildings and highlights include the Shire Hall in the center of town (which was designed by Robert Adam) and also the fine remains of the Norman castle, originally built to protect London from the Danish invasion.

Over in St Albans there is the spectacular St Albans Cathedral, one of the finest in the country, and the incredible Roman remains littered across the landscape from the ancient town of Roman Verulamium, one time capital of England. Other sites include Knebworth House, Hatfield House, Berkhamstead Castle and Shaw's Corner.

To get out and about in Hertfordshire you can either jump in the car and explore the seemingly endless old villages of thatched cottages and country gardens or get out on foot and experience the 166 mile Hertfordshire Way, as well as countless other cycle paths, foot paths, rivers, canals and lakes. Best of all are the beautiful Chiltern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Despite its proximity to London Hertfordshire still retains much of its original beauty and also includes one national nature reserve, 15 local nature reserves and 43 sites of special scientific interest; incredibly over half of the county is designated as 'Green Belt' land.

Discrimination by Postcode

Discrimination by Postcode

You really couldn't make it up, could you? Some of the country's most vulnerable people are missing out on their weekly £25 Cold Weather Payment, just because the system that's in operation is discriminating against them because payments are based on postcode, rather than geographic location.
