Hertford, the county town of Hertfordshire, beloved by Jane Austen and anyone keen on bonnets and lace, lies on the confluence of no fewer than four river valleys, making Hertfordshire one of England’s greenest and lushest counties. The Beane, Mimram and Rib flow into the River Lea at Hertford before finally joining the River Thames. The nearest larger towns are Harlow, Bishop’s Stortford and Stevenage.
Since Hertford was already county town in Saxon times and therefore important for the whole region, the ancient town centre is still boasting a medieval layout and there are a considerable number of timber-framed medieval buildings still standing in St Andrew Street among other notable streets. These medieval treasures may be largely hidden behind later added facades, but Hertford nonetheless maintains a pleasantly provincial and old-fashioned feel.
Although the County Hall and a number of local brewers provide some employment locally, Hertford’s residents by and large commute to London. Thankfully, Hertford has been able to avoid the type of shopping mall-culture and its town centre has been spared the typical store chains that have created such unexciting uniformity in high streets across the country. Independent shops selling anything from fashion to stationery can be found in the Hertford high street, although there is the obligatory cluster of well known supermarket brands, too.
Proving your case
As one of the main employers in Hertfordshire, Hertfordshire County Council, with their headquarters at County Hall, will have seen their share of fraudulent insurance claims made against the council over the years. When making an injury claim in Hertford you and your solicitor must prove that the other party was negligent and caused your accident, before any compensation pay-out can be sent to you.
An accident solicitor may therefore arrange for an independent medical assessment of your injuries to support your claim. If there are witnesses willing to speak up on your behalf or if you have photographs that were taken at the time and scene of your accident, your claim will progress much faster.
