near to Hitchin, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

Car park beside Payne's Park, Hitchin
Car park beside Payne's Park, Hitchin
Viewed from the grounds of Hitchin Museum, much of the car park is on the site of the yard of the Swan, a coaching inn from whence Kershaw's coach made its daily journey from Hitchin to London - just over four hours each way on a good day. The Kershaw service had been operated for 110 years by the same family but closed completely on the opening of the railway to Hitchin in 1850.
