Visit Tring and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Tring, Hertfordshire, mentioned in the Domesday Book, the name is Old English for wooded slope. Tring is a market town in the Chiltern Hills in Hertfordshire, is linked to London by the old Roman road of Akeman Street, by the modern A41, by the Grand Union Canal and by rail lines to Euston Station. Having this transport infrastructure, Tring is now largely a commuter town in the London commuter belt.
Water plays a big part in Tring's history:
- it is located at the summit level of the Grand Union Canal
- there has been extensive excavation of cuttings for the canal (and the railway)
- the four Tring reservoirs – Wilstone, Tringford, Startops End, and Marsworth – were built to supply water for the canal
- these reservoirs have been a national nature reserve since 1955, and a Site of Special Scientific Interest since 1987
Nearby, within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is the Ashridge Estate, part of the National Trust and home to Ashridge Business School.
