Tring

Being a small country village Tring suffered in the Black Death and especially the Enclosure Acts as most places at that time did, but with its strategic position between the Chilterns and the hills it was also well protected. Remains of the Danish and Saxons reveal that Tring was inhabited. Tring also gave its name to one of the country's Anglo-Saxon 'Hundreds'.

Before the Norman conquest, a church had been well established, some parts of which still remain in the current mostly 15th Century church, known for its carved memorials. In the British Museum, medieval frieze tiles from this church can also be found.

Tring Manor was owned by the Royal family until the death of Charles 1st's wife Henrietta. The Manor then passed on to Henry Guy, Clerk to the Treasury for Charles II. In 1682 Henry Guy built the Manor to Sir Christopher Wren's designs, and so provided a house for Nell Gwynne, a lady much admired by the King. Reverend Lawrence Washington also lived in the Manor, his great-great-grandson being the first President of America, George Washington.
