Hatfield and Its People: Compendium

The story of a new town, a garden city, an old village, a historic house, the farms and the countryside in a Hertfordshire Parish

This 588-page A5 book brings together the individual Hatfield and its People booklets into a single volume.

A comprehensive index has been added, something which the original booklets lacked.

The booklets, first published well over sixty years ago, remain unchallenged as the primary source of reference for anyone interested in the history of Hatfield.
