I had a couple of errands to run over in Letchworth today so thought I would share this little Hertfordshire gem with you. If I could afford it I would move there tomorrow so here's hoping I get a slice of the Euromillions tonight.
For a history of the world's first garden city have a look here . It's a shame that there isn't an Ebenezer Howard type figure these days ..... what would he make of the overcrowding in modern cities and towns?
The Old Town Hall
The lovely art deco Broadway Cinema
part pedestrianised town centre shopping area
what a claim to fame !
The Spirella Building .... history here
Shopping in the refurbished 1920s Arcade
There really is a good mix of small independent shops, a few of the smaller chains, charity shops, eateries and even Poundland. The roads are wide with lovely tree lined avenues and the pace of life seems a tad slower to most other towns of a similar size ... my kinda town x
