Some interesting facts about Harpenden, Hertfordshire

There are Roman remains in land around Harpenden, for instance in the park at Rothamsted. Harpenden village grew out of Westminster Abbey's gradual clearing of woodland for farming and settlement within its Wheathampstead manor, granted by Edward the Confessor in 1060. A first reference to a parish church is in 1221 (where it is referred to as Harpendene) so it is inferred that the village grew up around then. The church of St Nicholas is the oldest church in the town, originally built as a Chapel of ease in 1217.

Just beyond the southern edge of the town lies Nomansland Common (sometimes simply called "No Man's Land") upon which part of the Second Battle of St Albans was fought during the Wars of the Roses. Nomansland Common also saw the first annually contested steeplechase in England, in 1830 when it was organised by Thomas Coleman, and the last fight of nineteenth century bare-knuckle fighter, Simon Byrne. It was also the haunt of the highwaywoman known as Lady Katherine Ferrers, better known as the "Wicked Lady".

Between 1848 and 1914, the city was a regular venue for horse racing. In his History of Hertfordshire, in 1879, Edwin John Cussen said: "Although these meetings are under the patronage of anything unusual about the commissioners, again for two days in the year, all the pickpockets of London, crooks and villains who turn out to be the prison are allowed to make their own travel and Harpenden in a first-class compartment on the Midland Railway a danger to men and an impossibility for the ladies". Golf is played in the city since 1894 and then Harpenden Golf Club was created by a group of Harpenden with the help and financial contribution of 5 pounds of Sir John Bennet Lawes of Rothamsted. The club moved to a new course at the end of Hammonds in 1931, when Harpenden Common Golf Club was formed by those who wanted to be together. In 1932 Bamville Cricket Club was formed, and some of the common shares with the players .. unique situation in the world of golf and cricket ...

Lawes inherited the family estate at Rothamsted in 1834. Known as the "father of agricultural science", their experiences in the field early in Hertfordshire farms has led to a patent sale of phosphate fertilizers that greatly enriched.
