This wiki has been created by the Highfield history team and Year 11 historians and is aimed at striving to collect information and evidence about Letchworth Garden City (North Hertfordshire) and its role during the Great War of 1914-1918. The hope is that we will be able to sift through enough material and sources to produce a definitive history of this period and publish something from it. The format of which is as yet undecided. If you would like to make a contribution, no matter how small, we would like to include you within this publication. Any thoughts, comments and contributions would be most welcome.

Thanks to the very helpful staff at the First Garden City Heritage Museum in Letchworth who have helped us to look through a load of documents which have become a foundation stone of our work. We will continue to endeavour to make greater use of their expertise.

The site is currently being used for the Year 9 historical fiction project, but if you have any interetsing World War 1 family stories you would like to keep alive add them to the site through the discussion page or talk to one of the history teachers.
