This is the first short walk in the Baldock Sights Series.
Baldock is a historic market town in North Hertfordshire, England, it was once a centre for malting and a regional brewing centre. It maintained a large number of pubs throughout the 20th century. In fact, the 1881 census shows that Baldock was home to 30 drinking establishments, which is impressive considering the town’s population at the time was just 1900.
This series of tours will take you to the sites of all the known pubs, hotels and drinking establishments of Baldock, many of which are now closed with little evidence remaining of their existence.
The walks start and finish at the BAHC (Baldock Arts and Heritage Centre), which is run by a group of local volunteers, more information about Baldock local history can be found there.
