Hatfield and Its People – Draft

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

(by Hatfield W.E.A.)

When this series of A5 booklets was first published well over fifty years ago, it was rightly regarded as an exceptionally authoritative and informative work, and has remained unchallenged as the primary source of reference for anyone interested in the history of Hatfield.

In 2014, members of Hatfield Local History Society published facsimile versions of the individual booklets, with an index added to each.

A separate cumulative index to the complete series was published in 2015.

Hatfield Local History Society published the final addition in October 2023. This is a 588-page Omnibus Edition, which concatenates the complete series of booklets into a single A5 volume (see right).
