A HIGH Sheriff has vowed to visit all the county's historical gems within two months.

And Howard Guard kicked off his tour with a trip to Potters Bar Museum, followed by other museums in the south of Hertfordshire.

During his visit to the Wyllyotts Place site, he took a particular interest in the new stained glass window which is a new addition to the museum.

It has been formed from two fragments of Victorian stained glass window originally at historical Northaw House and shows a cupid in the middle.

Museum curator Arnold Davey said: "We took him to the piece and other notable interesting pieces.

"He seemed to be very pleased and even bought a booklet on sale in our shop about the Zeppelin crash."

He added: "He was here for about 45 minutes, which all adds to our profile in the town."

Mr Guard was also shown around by museum president and founder, Brian Warren.

Mr Guard said: "In Hertfordshire we burst with innovation and enterprise, but how many of us know Hertfordshire hosts 43 museums, all richly diverse and of tremendous interest.

"Our heritage is equal to the vibrancy of our companies - we just need to open the door to let people see it.
