The county of Hertfordshire is located in the south-east of England and from its border to the south it is only twelve miles from London ‘s centre. The counties bordering Hertfordshire are to the south London, to the north Bedfordshire, to the west Buckinghamshire, to the north east Cambridgeshire and to the east Essex.

The county of Hertfordshire is made up of a assortment of beautiful villages, old market towns and modern towns, which our local Independent Chartered Surveyors have carried out surveys in for many, many years. Half of Hertfordshire is Green Belt land with superb woodland areas, farmland and rivers and the Chiltern Hills are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The name of Hertfordshire dates back to the Anglo-Saxon era when it was known as ‘Heort Ford’, which means ‘deer crossing’.

Hertfordshire’s history goes back to the middle stone age with the land farmed during the Neolithic era. Permanent settlement goes back to the start of the Bronze Age. The Romans later settled in Hertfordshire in AD43 and the new town of Verulamium was one of the largest Roman towns in Britain. Following the withdrawal of the Romans from Britain the Anglo Saxons lived in the area starting up new towns such as Hertford. The Norman Conquest instigated the building of castles in the area at Berkhamsted and Bishop’s Stortford.

Three Springs, Offley, Hertfordshire

Typical of the Chilterns area is the countryside around Offley, which has recessed lanes, ancient hedges and unevenly shaped fields. To explore the Chilterns features the Three Spring Walk offers the perfect route. A short walk for an hour or so or a longer circular walk over five miles are options to enjoy the landscape. The Red Lion pub in Offley, in Kings Walden Road is the location of the beginning and end of both walks and a pub that we have surveyed in the past.

Our Chartered Surveyors can help with pub surveys too providing full structural surveys and schedules of condition – we strongly advise not to take on a pub lease without a schedule of condition as it will limit your future liabilities.

Small woodlands rather than rivers are what are described as the ‘three springs’. Mazebeard Spring, Newfield Spring and Mead Springs were possibly small areas of coppiced woodland, the word spring denoting the regrowth of shoots from trees cut close to the ground. This customary method of woodland management safeguarded a steady supply of material for fencing stakes and rural crafts.

All our Independent Chartered Surveyors have specialist knowledge of Listed buildings and can provide comprehensive structural survey reports and give expert advice.
