A small market town with a population of 36,000, Tring is in Hertfordshire's Chiltern Hills. Part of the Grand Union Canal, Tring also has direct rail connections to London Euston Station. Although it is a commuter town, Tring predates its current status. Architect Sir Christopher Wren designed the mansion at Tring Park in the 17th century. It now has its own brewery and many retail areas which are a huge source of employment. A mill is also in Tring which employs dozens of people.
Tring has produced two football referees who are Graham Barber and Graham Poll. Former London mayor Sir William Gore was born in Tring and so too was the footballer Julian James. Any visitor to Tring will be entranced by its high street which looks as though that it hasn't changed in generations.
