In the Year 2000, Hitchin Historical Society, in conjunction with Hitchin Forum, North Herts District Council, Hitchin Town Centre Initiative and The Comet, published a guide to the Blue Plaques which adorned thirteen buildings around the town centre. HHS had been instrumental in the installation of the plaques. The Blue Plaque Guide has been out of print for some time. A summary of the thirteen original plaque locations can now be found on this website … here. Updates, including sites with other commemorative wall plaques will shortly be added.
