Bye Bye Berkhamsted

Some of the sights around Berkhamsted - the canal, the town hall, old advertising and the local florist


Three years ago we moved to Berkhamsted…we're now embarking on the next adventure which involves a move into London.  I know!  Me!  In London!

I'm so sad to leave this lovely part of Hertfordshire but the office we both work at is relocating to Acton and neither of us wanted to do the soul destroying 3+ hour commute each day so decided that the best thing would be to move closer to our new place of work.

At first I was doubtful - I lived in London for a year and it was too busy, crowded and well, too "fast" for me so didn't think that 14 years later I would be moving back in.  We had a vague idea of which areas we wanted to move to and I'd seen them on maps, heard the names mentioned but really had no idea what these places would be like.  Richmond, Twickenham, Teddington, Kew (to name a few) - couldn't be further from the busy Islington I remembered!

So with new and exciting London experiences to come I wanted to have a look back at some of my favourite Berkhamsted specific posts…

Photo a Day 2015: August




Well I am waaaaaay overdue posting "photo a day" for August…I have a good reason though…we've been busy house hunting!  Yep, our time in Berkhamsted is up and in a matter of days we'll be moving to London!  

After spending a couple of Saturdays racing around various leafy parts of London from house viewing to house viewing, a declined offer on a house and a last minute booking to view a house I'd had no information on at all we managed to find somewhere, had the offer accepted and could start planning our house move!

Taste of Berkhamsted

2015 is host to the very first Taste of Berkhamsted - local restaurants and food producers come together at Ashlyns Hall for a delicious day out.


After days and weeks of clouds and rain it was nice to wake up to a bright blue, cloudless sky because today I had plans…a trip to the very first Taste of Berkhamsted!  There are a lot of fantastic and delicious local businesses in this area so knew that I'd be in for a treat…

I met Christine, the festival founder, a couple of months ago and it was clear from the start that she is utterly passionate about food whether it be how food is produced, where it comes from, how it tastes (obviously!) and how to get kiddies interested in good food.  With this is mind (but having no idea what would be at the festival) I set off confident that by the end of the day I would have had an interesting foodie adventure!
