Hidden Hertford – an audio visual guide

html video by EasyHtml5Video.com v3.9.1

This is the first three chapters of the official Hidden Hertford audio/visual tour. It is a unique opportunity to enjoy a virtual walk around the county town with a professional commentary on the history, heritage and points of nterest.

The mp4 video file was originally intended for us on iPods and can be viewed now on a variety of devices including a PC running Windows 10.

As this was photographed in 2008 some of the shops that are mentioned have changed ownership or trade. The Library has moved from Old Cross to Dolphin Yard, although the building remains and is used by a design agency. Some landmarks like Sovereign House have recently been demolished. The tour takes about one and a half hours on foot but as the introduction states, there are plenty of opportunities to stop for refreshment

Hidden Hertford logoIn 2007 Visit Britain contacted my colleague Carole Skidmore who was at that time working at East Herts Council and asked if Hertford would like to be part of the Hidden Britain project.

We raised over £32,000 from Visit Britain, Action for Market Towns, The National Lottery Awards for All and Hertford Town Council. Our local MP Mark Prisk also wrote a letter of support to assist in the grant process.

By early 2008 Hidden Hertford was ready to go. The funds were used for several projects including river trips, community festivals, educational days on the Farmers Market, equipment for Hertford Museum and the software, hardware and professional expertise to place a guided tour on to a digital platform.

This is only available as an mp4. I am only offering one format but there is software available if you need to convert the file. Once payment has been made you will be redirected to a new page from where you can download either file.

If you would like a French, German or Polish version please contact me as below.

Here is a quick photo montage of Hertford; much, much more appears in the video with historical background and the odd interesting story to accompany it. Clicking on one image will begin the slideshow.
