    5 Quickfire Hertford Facts

    1. Hertford Castle
      The first castle on the site (constructed from wood and earth), was built by the Saxons in 912 AD. It was captured briefly by the French in 1216 but was back under the rule of Henry V by the turn of the century. It was a love nest for Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon (who was later loved by the commoners, but not so much by her husband) and the castle was a favourite of Elizabeth I, who even moved her royal court and brought Parliament here from London to escape The Plague.
    2. Hole Foods
      Start spreading the news! Despite what the people of New York might say, doughnuts were first invented in Hertfordshire. Around 1800, Hertford resident Baroness Dimsdale wrote a 700-page recipe book which included a circular, baked treat called ‘dow nuts’. Yeah Manhattan, how do you like them big apples?!?
    3. Decisions Decisions
      The name ‘Hertford’ is simple in its derivation, ‘hert’ or ‘hart’ means a mature stag deer, ‘ford’ refers to a river crossing, so Hertford was therefore most likely a place in the river where deer had been seen crossing. What’s less known is that England’s first synod (meeting of the Church of England) took place in Hertford in 673, during which they decided on exactly when Easter should be celebrated. The dates were selected to overshadow the popular pagan spring festival.
    4. Bewitched
      The last time a woman was sentenced to death for witchcraft took place in Hertford Assizes. Jane Wenham was found guilty by a jury in 1712. Thankfully for Miss Wenham, the judge wasn’t quite so convinced by evidence which included her flying (which he mockingly claimed was not against the law). After the trial he was able to use his influence to gain her a royal pardon and she lived for another 18 years.
    5. Good Knight
      One of the most curious Hertford tales emerged in 2004 with the discovery of a network of secret underground tunnels that were used by the Knights Templar, the famed defenders of the Holy Grail. This alone might not have been enough to make headline news. But what did bring reporters and TV crews from around the world was the claim that a secret group, related to the knights, had been defending the tunnels and their contents through the generations ever since and still lived in the town.

    Thank You Over’s

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.
