A bit about Hitchin

Hitchin is first noted as the central place of the Hicce people mentioned in a 7th century document. It has been suggested that Hitchin was the location of the first meeting of representatives of the Christian churches of Anglo-Saxon England. By 1086 Hitchin is described as a Royal Manor in the Domesday Book. Evidence has been found to suggest that Hitchin was once provided with an earthen bank and ditch fortification, probably in the early tenth century but this did not last.

The name of Hitchin is associated with the small river Hitch that runs through the town.

Hitchin is notable for St. Marys Church, which is very large for a town of its size. The size of the church is evidence of how Hitchin prospered from the wool trade. It is the largest parish church in all of Hertfordshire. Most of the church dates from the 15th century, with its tower dating from around 1190. During the laying of a new floor in the church in 1911, foundations of a more ancient church building were found.

In 1697, Hitchin was subject to what is thought to have been the most severe hailstorm in recorded British history. Hailstones over 4 inches in diameter were reported to have fallen.

Hitchin flourished on the wool trade, and by the 17th century Hitchin was a staging post for coaches coming from London. By the middle of the 19th century the railway had arrived, and with it a new way of life for Hitchin. The corn exchange was built in the market place and within a short time Hitchin established itself as a major centre for grain trading.

The latter half of the 20th century has also brought great changes in communication to Hitchin. Motorways have shortened the journey time and brought Luton, a few miles away on the M1, and the A1 (M) even closer. Hitchin also developed a fairly strong Sikh community.

The British Schools Museum in Hitchin is home to the worlds only known complete Lancasterian Schoolroom, which was built in 1837 to teach boys by the Lancasterian method, otherwise known as peer tutoring.
