RICHARD III’S COMMISSIONERS OF ARRAY IN HERTFORDSHIRE AND SOME HITCHIN CONNECTIONS

An illustrated talk by Dr Heather Falvey

Church House, Hitchin, Thursday 27 June 2024, at 8:00pm

Hitchin is a medieval market town which is known to have existed since at least the eighth century AD making it one of the oldest towns in Hertfordshire. So, with over 1,000 years of history to research, Hitchin Historical Society was formed to increase and spread knowledge of this historic past. 

For most months of the year the society holds a members’ meeting in St Mary’s church house with a presentation on a particular topic. Details of this year’s Church House meetings can be found on the Indoor Meetings page. The theme for the next meeting is shown above.

Physic Garden in June (Dr G Tidy)

Hitchin has retained much of its historic character despite enormous growth since the 1850s. It is noted for its specialist shops, busy market, the largest parish church in Hertfordshire and its attractive streets. 

A key feature of the town is the Physic Garden (pictured) located outside the town library and maintained by the society.
