The market town of Hitchin lies on the River Hiz in Hertfordshire, England, and is an ancient human settlement that is documented as far back as the 7th century. The town is in close proximity of the A1 road and M1 motorway as well as Luton, where the nearest airport is located.
Hitchin prospered during the wool trade in the Middle Ages, as evidenced by St Mary’s Church, which is reputedly the largest parish church in Hertfordshire. While its tower dates back to as early as 1190, the remainder of the church was built in the 15th century, but during building works at the start of the 20th century it was discovered that St Mary’s sits on a site that had a much early building on it.
Hitchin is also noteworthy for another strange historic event. In 1697 the town was subjected to a storm that broke all the records when hailstones measuring more than 4 inches in diameter rained down on Hitchin’s residents. The event marks what many believe to have been the worst hail storm recorded in British history.
