North Herts: bringing communities together for 50 years

The North Hertfordshire district was created on 1 April 1974 under the Local Government Act 1972. It brought together five areas:

  • Baldock Urban District
  • Hitchin Urban District
  • Hitchin Rural District
  • Letchworth Urban District
  • Royston Urban District

That means we’re officially 50 in 2024, so we thought we’d celebrate this golden milestone with a timeline trip down memory lane. How many events do you remember?

From Queen Elizabeth II unveiling North Herts Leisure Centre in 1982 to the star-studded filming of 'My Policeman' at Hitchin Outdoor Pool with Harry Styles in 2021, the last 50 years have been filled with unforgettable moments.

Thank you for being part of the North Herts story and here’s to putting North Herts on the map for the next 50 years!
