Aristocrats, Paupers & Philanthropists

Based in the St Peter’s area you will hear of London orphans and their wet nurses, the philanthrophy of Winston Churchill’s ancestors and find out about the “heir and spare”. Why is there an arrow above the Pemberton Almshouse on St Peter’s Street and why is there an unusual milestone in Hatfield Road?

An interesting stroll around the lesser known historic features of St Albans.
