In Cowbridge on the road to Bengeo is a blue plaque to the memory of Captain W E Johns, creator of the fictional hero Biggles. He lived here in Biggles House before moving less than a mile away in Molewood Road.

The countryside around Hertford offers ideal opportunities for walkers, either following established routes or simply exploring the lanes and flood meadows. Hertford is renowned for its large number of restaurants and pubs, as well as a vibrant arts, theatre and music scene.
