A HISTORIC building played host to a special guest.

High Sheriff of Hertfordshire, Howard Guard visited Shaw's Corner in Ayot St Lawrence on Friday.

His whistle-stop tour of all the county's National Trust sites concluded at the former home of playwright George Bernard Shaw.

He met property staff as well as National Trust volunteers and congratulated them on the upkeep of the site.

A spokesman for the National Trust said: "It was a successful trip that gave the sheriff a chance to be acquainted with the staff that run the property."

Shaw's Corner opens for the season on March 15.

# Staff and volunteers at Mill Green Museum also welcomed the High Sheriff recently.

He enjoyed a tour of the watermill and also chatted to volunteer John Bartlett and miller Dave Knight.

Museums manager John Beckerson said: "Mr and Mrs Guard have a strong interest in art, museums and heritage, and it was a pleasure to show them round.

"We are always glad to welcome new visitors. You don't have to be a sheriff to have a great time at Mill Green and Welwyn Roman Baths.
