Tring & Villages was the fifth edition of Local Directory to be launched in April 2012.
Tring is a delightful market town and civil parish in the Chiltern Hills in Hertfordshire. It has strong historical ties to the Rothschilds, the aristocratic 19th century family of German/Jewish industrialists and politicians, largely responsible for transforming this ancient hamlet into a thriving Victorian town. The family’s legacy remains today, with much of the town reflecting the Rothschild’s influence through its buildings and architecture, including the Natural Zoological History Museum. This fascinating collection displays many rare and extinct animal species, from the family’s own private taxidermy exhibits.
Settlements in Tring date back to prehistoric times and it was mentioned in the Domesday Book. Tring received its market town charter in 1315. The town straddles the Roman road called Akeman Street, which runs through it as the High Street.
It is situated 30 miles (48km) north-west of London and its easy access to good road and rail links has established the town as a popular commuter hub, in spite of Tring station being situated 2 miles away from the main town high street (the Rothschilds did not want their town spoiled by the impact of the railways and industrialisation).
More recently, Tring has become home to a thriving business community of cultural and entrepreneurial companies who celebrate their local heritage with pride; artisan breweries, a gin distillery, a pop up open cinema, arts and comedy festivals (the annual “Tringe” festival previews the international Edinburgh Fringe, and is now established as the “7th Longest Comedy Festival in the World”) among others, keep the townsfolk busy and entertained. The former livestock market in Tring, redeveloped in 2005, was believed to be the last remaining example of its type in the UK. It is now the home of a weekly Friday market and a fortnightly Saturday farmers’ market. Some of the former livestock pens have been retained. The old livestock market office is now the home of the Tring Local History Museum, which opened in September 2010.
