HITCHIN has been put on the map.

A bird's eye view was unveiled in Hitchin's Market Place, giving visitors and the community a new view of the town.

It was made thanks to Hitchin company GE Life and the Hitchin Town Centre Initiative who financed and organised the project.

Keith Hoskins, Hitchin town centre manager, said: "People have long been asking for a map of the town in the market square.

"We wanted to get something very nice and something we could have copyright of so we can reproduce it. So there's now this one in the town centre and we'll make smaller ones available in a guide.

"GE were a huge support with funding this project and do masses of good work in the community and we now have a great map of Hitchin.
