Hertford, once the main market town for the middle ages agricultural county, obtains its name from a hart (stag) and a ford, used as the elements of the county’s coat of arms and flag. Elevations are high for the area in the north and west. These reach over 240m in the western projection around Tring which is in the Chilterns. The county’s borders are around the watersheds of the Colne and Lea; both streaming to the south; each accompanied by a canal. Hertfordshire’s undeveloped land is mainly agricultural and much is secured by green belt.
Hertfordshire is well-served with motorways and railways, offering excellent access to London. The largest sector of the economy of the county remains in services.
The county’s landmarks span many centuries, ranging from the 6 Hills in the brand-new town of Stevenage built by local residents during the Roman period, to Leavesden Film Studios. Leavesden shot much of the UK-based $7.7 Bn box office Harry Potter film series and has the country’s studio tour. The volume of intact medieval and Tudor buildings exceeds London, in locations in well-preserved sanctuary, particularly in St Albans that includes some remains of Verulamium, the town where in the 3rd century an early recorded British martyrdom happened. Saint Alban, a Romano-British soldier, took the place of a Christian priest and was beheaded on Holywell Hill. His martyr’s cross of a yellow saltire on a blue background is shown in the flag and coat of arms of Hertfordshire.
