Welwyn Garden City is situated between Hatfield and Stevenage it was Britain's second 'garden city'. The garden city was the vision of Ebenezer Howard, one of the worlds great social reformers.
Howard believed that the problems of overcrowding, poor living conditions and pollution could be solved by combining the town and country. After creating the first garden city at Letchworth in 1903.
Howard went on to develop Welwyn Garden City in 1920.
