Synopsis

In 1539, Henry VIII came to Hemel Hempstead and granted a Charter, putting the town on the map. Its designation as a New Town in 1946 has seen it grow from a market town of 22,000 to one of the largest in the county. Hemel Hempstead History Tour takes the reader on a journey through the many changes the town has undergone in its long history. While some areas will seem relatively unchanged, many have become unrecognisable. The curious and nostalgic alike will delight in uncovering or rediscovering the roots of this ever-changing town with the help of this wonderfully illustrated guide.
