River Town
Our newest workshop covers aspects of a wide range of curriculum areas. We begin with a history of Hertford as influenced by its rivers. Using maps covering a 350 year period we explore how the trade in grain brought wealth and prosperity to the town leading to an increase in population and development.

In the second part of the workshop, we head out on foot for a walking tour to explore Hertford’s rivers as they are now; a rich source of leisure pursuits and a precious haven for wildlife.
