Baldock Through Time

By (author) Madgin, Hugh

A classic example of a Hertfordshire market town, Baldock has a fascinating history. Founded by the Knights Templar in the twelfth century on the ancient Icknield Way, at a location which had previously been settled in the Roman era and before, Baldock retains its market and annual fair, held by charter dating back to 1199, and contains a wealth of fine buildings. Through comparative views of Tudor timber framing, to classically-proportioned Georgian frontages, and the Art Deco magnificence of what is now a Tesco superstore, Baldock Through Time takes a close look at a town that has not only alternately been known as a brewing centre and the location of the largest hosiery factory in the country, but has also been bypassed twice in the space of forty years.
