TRING is a market town and parish on the road to Aylesbury and on the Buckinghamshire border of the county, with a station 1¾ miles distant (and locally in Albury parish), on the London and North Western railway, and 31¾ miles from London; the town is 7 miles south-east from Aylesbury and 4½ north-west from Berkhamsted, in the Western division of the county, in Dacorum hundred and petty sessional division, Berkhamsted union, Aylesbury county court district, and in the rural deanery of Berkhamsted, and archdeaconry and diocese of St. Albans; the Grand Junction canal passes near.  A Local Board of Health of 9 members was established in February, 1859; the town is lighted with gas, by a company, from works in Western Road [Ed. – should read Brook Street].

The church of St. Peter and Paul is an ancient building of stone and flint in the Perpendicular style, with features of an earlier date, and consists of chancel, nave, aisles, south porch and a massive embattled western tower containing 8 bells, dating from 1624 to 1882: the interior was thoroughly restored in 1862 and the church partially rebuilt during the years 1880 and 1881, a new dock, chiming the quarters, being at the same time placed in the tower; the restoration, completed in March, 1882, cost about £3,500, furnished by voluntary contributions.

The register dates from 1566.  The living is a vicarage, corn rent £24, net yearly value £170, with glebe (£18) and residence, in the gift of J. G. Williams Esq. of Pendley Manor, and held since 1892 by the Rev. Samuel Waite Tidswell M.A. of Worcester College, Oxford.

Long Marston, formerly a part of this parish, was formed into a separate ecclesiastical parish in 1871.

The Baptist chapel here affords 450 sittings; there is also a Particular Baptist chapel, seating 1,000, and a Primitive Methodist chapel, with 100 sittings.

The Constitutional Club, in the Western road, is a structure of red brick with stone dressings, erected in 1892, at the sole expense of Joseph Grout Williams Esq. J.P. of Pendley Manor, from designs by Mr. William Huckvale, architect, of Tring, and comprises a reading room, two billiard rooms, a committee room and the usual offices.

The Market House, in the High street, was erected in 1750 and is a building of wood with a tiled roof and iron railings in front.  A market is held on Friday, which in the earlier part of the day is attended by women from the neighbouring villages, who make straw plait and meet here the buyers from Luton and other parts; the corn market is also held here at p.m. throughout the year; the fair on Easter Monday and Old Michaelmas Day is still held.  A sale of fat stock is held in the Cattle Market, Brook street, every Monday at 1.30 p.m.  W. Brown and Co. auctioneers.

The business of the town consists chiefly in canvas weaving, straw plaiting, silk throwing and brewing.  The Victoria Hall in Akeman street, erected in 1886, on the site of the former assembly room, built in 1825, is an edifice of red brick with stone dressings, in the Italian Renaissance style, from designs by Mr. William Huckvale, architect, of Tring, and contains on the ground floor a spacious entrance hall, reading room, library and committee room and on the first floor an assembly room 36 feet by 70 feet, with a platform and seating seat 500 persons; there is also an audit room.

The Literary and Scientific Institute, founded in 1849, has a library of 800 volumes and a reading room; there are now (1894) 50 members.

The Rothschild Museum, erected in 1889, by the Hon. Lionel Walter Rothschild F.R.S. consists of the museum itself, a red brick building of two storeys, and adjoining it at one end a half-timbered house, separated from the museum by a wide stone staircase, which forms the public means of access to the gallery; the museum contains Mr. Rothschild's private Natural History collections, but is open to public inspection on the first three days of the week and on Fridays and is largely visited; the ground floor is devoted to birds and mammals; and the upper floor to sponges corals, molluscs, fishes and reptiles; besides insects and crustaceans.  The collections are now very extensive and are being constantly increased by the labours of special collectors employed by Mr. Rothschild in foreign countries; and the arrangement of the specimens is proceeding under the direction of the curator and his assistants; the Museum house, which has a bold gabled oriel, contains Mr. Rothschild
s study, curators room library and entomological cabinets; attached is a taxidermists and general workshop, and a short distance off is a space of ground with cages and also a paddock for the keeping of live animals; Dr. Ernest Hartert and Dr. Carl Jordan, curators.

There are several coal clubs and a district visiting society, all supported by contributions.  The Tring Poor
s Land, formerly consisting of 107a. 3r. 7p. of land and 3 houses, but now sold and the proceeds invested in Consols, produces an annual income of upwards of £180, and is distributed in coal at Christmas.  The other charities, now consolidated, with an income of about £140, are administered under a new scheme from the Charity Commissioners, dated 1884, which allows the application of its funds in several channels for the benefit of the poor and mainly for the encouragement of thrift and independence.

Tring Park the property and residence of Lord Rothschild, is pleasantly seated amid lovely woodland scenery, with undulating slopes richly timbered on all sides.  Lord Rothschild is lord of the manor of Tring, and Joseph Grout Williams Esq.. J.P. of the manor of Pendley.  The principal landowners are Lord Rothschild and J. G Williams Esq.. J.P. of Pendley Manor, and the Dean and Chapter of Christ College, Oxford.

The soil, which rests on the lower chalk formation. varies considerably.  The area is 7,625 acres of land and 221 water; rateable value, £25,195; the population in 1891 was 5,426, of which 4,986 are attached to the parish church.  The population of the Local Board district in 1891 was 4,525.

Little Tring and Tring Grove are hamlets.  At Little Tring, 1 mile from Tring, are the Grand Junction Canal Water Works and reservoir; the latter is 405 feet above the sea, being a trifle higher than the summit of St. Paul
s, London; there are 55 locks on the canal between Northchurch and the Thames.

WILSTONE is a small hamlet and chapelry of Tring, from which it is 2 miles north-west and 6.5 east from Aylesbury.  The village is pleasantly seated in a valley under the hills, on the Aylesbury canal.  The church of St. Cross, built and opened in 1877, but not yet consecrated, is an edifice of flint and brick, in the Early English style, consisting at present of a nave only, seating about 200 persons.  There is also a small Baptist chapel seating 120. Straw plaiting is the principal employment of the females here.  The area is 690 acres.
