As part of the national Heritage Open Days scheme, Hertford Town Council has organised a photo trail around the county town until Sunday, September 11.

Visitors will be able to view historical photographs of town centre locations at businesses across Hertford, and find out more about the heritage of the buildings.

Councillor Peter Ruffles has provided information and anecdotes on the locations and past history.

The displayed photographs in the premises have been provided by Hertford Museum.

Hertford Castle is also taking part in the Heritage Open Days weekend by holding a heritage day on Sunday, September 11.
