Tring is a small market town and civil parish in the Dacorum District of Hertfordshire, situated in a gap passing through the Chiltern Hills, 30 miles North West of London. It has a population of around 12,000 residents.
It is an ancient town - there is evidence of Prehistoric settlement with Iron Age Barrows and defensive embankments adjacent to the Ridgeway Path and also later with Saxon burials. The town straddles the Roman road called Akeman Street.
Tring has had a Parish Church for more than 700 years, but little, if anything, is left of the first building on the site, which probably predates the Norman Conquest. There are fragments of a 13th century window.
