Heritage

70 years of Stevenage
Thursday, February 14, 2019

Ownership of a multi-million pound piece of public art at Stevenage’s newly-named Barclay Academy will be retained by Herts County Council, even though the school now belongs to a private sponsor.

The author of a book on a infamous unsolved Hitchin murder is appearing on the UK’s most successful history podcast today – exactly 100 years after the crime took place.

People gathered at Hitchin’s war memorial on Sunday to remember the town’s only Victoria Cross winner – as a commemorative paving stone honouring him was unveiled.

An appeal is being launched to help raise the final £200,000 needed for the major renovation and modification of a Grade I-listed church - the oldest building in Stevenage.

Hitchin’s only Victoria Cross winner is set to be honoured with a memorial stone this Sunday.
