A BIT ABOUT LETCHWORTH

Population

Letchworth Garden City, often referred to now as just Letchworth, is a town in Hertfordshire 35 miles north of London, with a population of circa 33,600.

Some Background History of Letchworth

Letchworth is the world's first Garden City. It was designed to be a solution to the squalor and poverty of urban life in Britain in the late 19th Century. In 1898, the social reformer Ebenezer Howard wrote a book entitled To-morrow: A Peaceful Path to Real Reform (later republished as Garden Cities of To-morrow), in which he advocated the construction of a new kind of town.The vision included tree lined streets, low density housing with spacious gardens and public parks combining the best of 'town and country' living together in one space.

A competition was held to find a town design which could translate Howard's ideas into reality, and in September 1903 the company "First Garden City Ltd." was formed. Barry Parker and Raymond Unwin were appointed architects, and 16 km² of land outside Hitchinwas purchased for the development of Letchworth Garden City. In keeping with the ideals only one tree was felled during the entire initial construction phase of the town, and an area devoted to agriculture surrounding the town was included in the plan, the first 'Green Belt'.

Other towns built influenced by Letchworth Garden City include Tapanila in Finand, Hellerau in Germany, Mezaparks in Latvia, and Canberra the capital of Australia,
