KELLYS DIRECTORY, 1926.
HERTFORDSHIRE: ENTRY FOR TRING.


TRING is a market town and parish on the road to Aylesbury and on the Buckinghamshire border of the county, with a. station 1¾ miles distant (and locally in Aldbury parish), on the London, Midland and Scottish Railway, and 31¾ miles from London; the town is 7 miles south-east from Aylesbury and 4½ north-west from Berkhamsted, in the Hemel Hempstead division of the county, Dacorum hundred and petty sessional division, Berkhamsted union, Aylesbury county court district, and in the rural deanery of Berkhamsted and archdeaconry and diocese of St. Albans; the Grand Union canal passes near the station, and has a branch to Aylesbury: the town is lighted with gas by the Tring Gas Light and Coke Co. Limited, from works in Brook street, and supplied with water by the Chiltern Hills Spring Water Co. The town is sewered on the broad irrigation system.

Under the provisions of the “Local Government Act, 1894.” (56 and 57 Vict. c. 73), the Urban portion of the parish is now governed by an Urban District Council of 12 members, formed in 1894, which took the place of the Local Board established in February, 1859. In pursuance of the same Act, Tring has been divided into two civil parishes, viz. Urban and Rural. the latter having a Parish Council of 7 members, and comprising Long Marston and Wilstone, which see.

The church of SS. Peter and Paul is an ancient building of stone and flint in the Perpendicular style, with features of an earlier date, and consists of chancel, nave, aisles, south porch and a massive embattled western tower containing 8 bells. dating from 1624 to 1882: the interior was thoroughly restored in 1862 and the church partially rebuilt during the years 1880 and 1881, a new clock, chiming the quarters, being at the same time placed in the tower; the restoration, completed in March, 1882, cost about £3,500, furnished by voluntary contributions: in 1900 a rood screen and loft of carved oak were erected, the east end of the south aisle formed into a chapel. and the chancel panelled in oak and decorated, the whole cost being defrayed by a lady resident in the parish: there are 300 sittings. The register dates from 1566. The living is a vicarage, net yearly value £546, and residence, in the gift of Major Vivian Williams, and held since 1919 by the Rev. Thomas Vernon Garnier O.B.E., M.A., of Trinity College, Oxford. St. Martha’s, in Park road, is a chapel of ease to the parish church. St. George’s Mission church is at New Mill. The Baptist chapel in Western road, founded in 1750, affords 450 sittings: there is also a Strict Baptist chapel in Akeman street, seating 850, and one at New Mill, founded in 1655, and having 600 sittings; Ebenezer Baptist chapel, in Chapel street, will seat 300 persons, and there is a Primitive Methodist chapel, with 100 sittings. The Church House, in Western road, erected in 1897, is a structure of red brick, from designs by Mr. William Huckvale, architect, of Tring, and is used for concerts &c. The Cemetery at the west end of the town, provided in 1894, under the “Public Health (Interments) Act, 1879,” is under the management of the Urban District Council: there is one chapel: the area is 4a 3r 27p; part of the ground has been consecrated.

The Tring and District Conservative Club, in the Western road, is a structure of red brick with stone dressings, erected in 1892, at the expense of the late Joseph Grout Williams Esq.. J.P. and comprises a reading room, lounge. two billiard rooms, a committee room and the usual ofiices. The ancient Market House was taken down, and another erected in 1898 on a site presented by the first Lord Rothschild, d. 1915; the building is timber-framed in oak, filled with rough cast, and contains a hall, 41 by 26 feet, used by the Council, with a fire brigade station, surveyor’s office, committee and store rooms underneath. A market is held on Friday. The fair on Easter Monday and Old Michaelmas Day is still held. A sale of fat stock is held in the Cattle Market, Brook street, every Monday at 1.30 p.m.; W. Brown and Co. auctioneers.

The Rothschild Museum, erected in 1889, by the first Lord Rothschild F.R.S. contains special collections for scientific research. The building is a large house of two storeys, access to the upper galleries being obtained by a stone staircase: a wing containing ornithological and entomological departments, was added in 1912: the museum contains Lord Rothschild’s private Natural History collections, and the galleries are open to public inspection on the first three days of the week and on Fridays, and are largely visited; the ground floor is devoted to birds and mammals, and the upper floors to sponges, corals, molluscs, fishes, mammals and reptiles, besides insects and crustaceans. The collections are now very extensive and are being constantly increased; the arrangement of the specimens is proceeding under the supervision of the director and his assistants; there is also a taxidermist’s workshop; Dr. Ernst Hartert is director, and Dr. Karl Jordan curator of the entomological department. Attached to the Museum is a special zoological library.

The Tring Nursing Home occupies premises in Station road, presented by Lady Rothschild, and includes an accident ward; it is vested in two trustees and supported by voluntary contributions. An Isolation Hospital was erected in 1901 by the Urban District Council, and has ten beds. The Tring Poor's Land, formerly consisting of 107a. 3r. 7p. of land and 3 houses, has been sold and the proceeds invested in Consuls producing an annual income of £127, which is distributed in coal at Christmas. The other charities, now consolidated, and yielding an income of about £140, are administered under a scheme framed by the Charity Commissioners in 1884, which allows the application of the funds specified in it for the benefit, in various ways, of the poor, but is mainly devoted to the encouragement of thrift and independence.

Tring Park, the property of the trustees of the Hon. N. Charles Rothschild, and residence of Lady Rothschild, is pleasantly seated amid lovely woodland scenery, with undulating slopes richly timbered on all sides. The trustees of the Hon. N. Charles Rothschild are lords of the manor of Tring, and the principal landowners. The soil, which rests on the lower chalk formation, varies considerably.

The area of Tring Urban parish and District is 4,364 acres of land and 43 of water; rateable value, £27,354: the population in 1921 was 4,345.

Little Tring and Tring Grove are hamlets. At Little Tring, 1 mile from Tring, are the Grand Junction Canal Water pumping station and reservoir; the latter is 405 feet above the sea, being a trifle higher than the summit of St. Paul's, London; there are 55 locks on the canal between Northchurch and the Thames.
