More about Watercress in Hertfordshire

Subject Index
Watercress was widely grown in the water from the chalk streams of Hertfordshire and harvested for sale locally and in London. I have updated the page on watercress with a picture of the watercress beds on the bank of the River Gade in Cassiobury Park, Watford, and a press report of the theft of watercress at Hertingfordbury in 1844.
