TRING


A SMALL and irregularly built market town, situated the moat westerly of any in the county of Herts.  It is distant 8 miles from Aylesbury, 15 from St. Albans, 27 from Hertford, and 31 north west of London.  Tring seems to have been a place of some consequence during the Saxon heptarchy, as it, at that period, gave name to a hundred, of which it was the capital; little now, however, remains of its former greatness.  The parish church is a handsome and spacious structure, adorned with a high square battled tower at its western end; the interior comprises a nave, chancel, and aisles, and contains a few mural monuments.  Here are also places of worship for dissenters, and a charity school for educating and clothing twenty boys, sons of the parishioners.  The market day is Friday, and is chiefly for the purchase and sale of corn and straw plat.  An annual fair is held on the 29th. of September, and two small statutes; on Easter Tuesday and 10th October, the latter is for the hiring of servants.  In the neighbourhood are several elegant seats.  According to the late returns under the population act, this town contained 3,286 inhabitants.

POST OFFICEŚWm. Montague, Postmaster. London Mail arrives at midnight, and departs at three in the morning.
