Literary Hertfordshire

Map of Hertfordshire

Did you know that Pride and Prejudice was set in Hertfordshire?

Were you aware that Charles Dickens reported on the destruction of the west wing of Hatfield House when he was a reporter for the Morning Chronicle in 1835?

Hertfordshire has a wide range of connections with some of the world's most celebrated novels and authors.

Literary Hertfordshire is a collaborative project between the University of Hertfordshire and Hertfordshire County Council.

The project aims to

  • explore the county's rich literary heritage.
  • provide a snapshot of past and present Hertfordshire authors.
  • build a place for local communities to discover their literary heritage.
