I live on Folly Island in the middle of Hertford. The photos below were taken on 1 April when the cherry trees in Thornton Street are just coming into blossom. It is a pretty sight and you don’t get many opportunities because the blossom on the older trees is almost fallen by the time that it appears on the newer trees.

In 2008 an audio/video tour of Hertford was recorded and published. It was intended for iPod use for visitors to be able to walk around the the town with their own visual guide.

Unfortunately funds and support were lost and some of the landmarks have now gone such as Woolworths but the guide is still relevant.

I have recovered all the files and converted them to a MP4 file that can be viewed on YouTube and a separate audio MP3 file.

The background story, links and downloads are at Hidden Hertford along with maps and links to other interesting sites.
