View of the green at Baldock in North Hertfordshire. Baldock is situated on an important Roman road- the Icknield Wa and is thirty seven miles from London. The town was founded by the Knights Templar in the 12th century after land was granted to them by Gilbert, Earl Strongbow. The town has also been known as ‘Balbeck’ or ‘Baudac’. The distinctive tower of the parish church of St Mary’s can be seen to the right of this print. During the 17th and 18th century Baldock became know for its malting and brewing factories.
