All aspects of the environment resulting from the interaction between people and places through time, including all surviving physical remains of past human activity, whether visible, buried or submerged, and landscaped and planted or managed flora.

Historical Feature

The oldest obvious historical feature in Hertford Heath is the route of the Roman road, Ermine Street, which crosses the Heath and continues from Hertford Heath Motors on London Road and on to the War Memorial.  Along this route, significant archaeological discoveries have been made of our ancestors' activities over 2000 years ago.

Housing Associations

Independent, not-for-profit organisations that work with councils to offer flats and houses to local people on the Housing Register.
