Block Management Hertford East
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Hertford East.
History of Hertford East
Hertford East, in Hertfordshire, is situated 20 miles north of central London. Hertford was originally a settlement in Saxon times, on the River Lea. Shortly after the Norman Conquest, Hertford Castle was built, and remained a royal residence, until the early 17th century. In the Domesday Book, published in 1086, during the period of King William I, "The Conqueror", (r. 1066-1087), Hertford is shown as the largest 20% of settlements recorded.
In the 18th century, Hertford grew and developed as a market and county town. Communication was improved as a result of the construction of the Lea Navigation Canal in 1767, and the development of the railway at Hertford, in 1843. Hertford East railway station was built in 1888, and it replaced the first one, built in 1843.
Because Hertford was surrounded by agricultural estates, it had been unable to expand outwards, and had to be expanded upwards by adding storeys to existing buildings. The outward expansion of the town did not begin until the late 19th century, coinciding with the emergence of the railway; thus transport links to London improved. Electricity and gas were introduced, and industry grew. Hertford remains a thriving, popular and rapidly expanding town.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Hertford East
I would highly recommend Hertford's Heritage Trail, and it gave me a good insight into the history of Hertford town. It has some lovely pleasant old buildings.
Things to do in Hertford East
The Hertford Heritage Trail has at least 41 stops. Fore Street is very pretty, and is located near the grand Georgian Shire Hall. The western end of the street has rare pargeting - decorative stuccowork - on the Salisbury Arms. This dates from 1750. The terrace of mid 17th century houses, at 3-13 is a joy to see, as is Wallace House, at 11 St. Andrew Street. This was the home of naturalist Alfred Russell Wallace (1823-1913), who travelled to the Amazon Basin and Malay Archipelego. His theory of evolution coincided at the same time as Charles Darwin.
Hertford East - Cultural Scene
Hertford Castle has a beautiful Castle Gardens, on the River Lea. The castle is on a site first fortified by the King of the Anglo-Saxons, Edward the Elder, in the early 10th century. It was turned into a Norman motte-and-bailey castle in the 11th century, and that earthwork mound can still be seen beside the River Lea.
The castle was rebuilt in stone by Henry II in the 1170s. Until the early 17th century, the castle was a royal residence, and was often used for prisoners, for example Knights Templar, and King John II of France, and David II of Scotland, during the Hundred Years' War. In 1563, Parliament met at the castle, during an outbreak of plague in London. Since then, the castle declined. The castle's surviving assets today are Henry II's flint and stone wall, and the gatehouse, remodelled in a Gothic Revival style in the late 18th century.
