Hertfordshire Countryside - September Issue

Hertfordshire Countryside
September 2011
The Hertfordshire Countryside magazine has been going for over 60 years, and the early issues are packed with history. The modern version is better seen as a life style magazine, but each issue contains several articles (typically 2 or 3 pages) of particular interest to people interested in Hertfordshire local history. The following articles in the September 2011 issue caught my eye:

Is the Age of Eccentrics Over? Former Hertfordshire eccentrics include Edward Sturgess of Walkern, Henry Trigg of Stevenage and Piers Shonk of Brent Pelham.
Reminiscing the Ruins. The history and pictures of Sopwell Nunnery, St Albans.
A Reluctant Hero. Percy Childerley (1894-1970) wins the DCM in the First World War.
Datchworth. A village with an interesting history.
Hoddesdon's 1253 Charter Fair Returns.
