History: About Me

Between Tring and Berkhamsted stands Aldbury, one of the most picturesque villages in Hertfordshire, with timber-framed cottages and an historic inn, clustered around the village duck pond, where an old set of stocks still stand.

The village was mentioned as Aldeberie in the Domesday Book, when it was valued at £8 and was home to 8 villagers, 1 freeman, 1 frenchman, 1 smallholder and 4 slaves.

This quintessential English village is now treasured by all who are lucky enough to live here and is prized as as a location for filming. It has featured in several movies and episodes of Midsomer Murders, Killing Eve and Quiz.
