Geo-Trips :: A tour of Letchworth

Stotfold

A drive from Hitchin, Sat, 12 May 2018 by David Howard

I have been to Letchworth many times but not with the camera, and was not close to my map coverage, so an ideal spot to cover by weaving in and out of what is quite a maze of roads. The traffic was fairly heavy throughout, with people travelling around town in all directions. There are the more suburban arts and crafts style garden city areas, with the usual Herts council estates and faceless shopping areas surrounding them. There are also various parks and woodlands making it a fairly green place as designed by Ebenezer Howard and others. I also covered as many of the surrounding villages as possible.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
