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 Aldbury 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 the town, and has branches to Wendover [Ed.− by now mostly abandoned] and Aylesbury: the town is lighted with gas by a company, from works in Brook street, and supplied with water by the Chiltern Hills Spring Water Co.  The town is sewered on the broad irrigation system.

Under the provisions of the “Local Government Act, 1894” (56 and 57 Vict. c. 73), the Urban portion of the parish is now governed by an Urban District Council of 12 members, formed in 1894, which takes the place of the Local Board established in February, 1859.  In pursuance of the same Act, Tring has been divided into two civil parishes, viz. Urban and Rural, the latter having a Parish Council of 7 members, and comprising Long Marston and Wilstone, which see.

The church of SS. 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 clock, 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: in 1900 a rood screen and loft of carved oak were erected, the east end of the south aisle formed into a chapel, and the chancel panelled in oak and decorated, the whole cost being defrayed by a lady resident in the parish: there are 300 sittings.  The register dates from 1566.  The living is a vicarage, with Wilstone annexed, net yearly value £261, and residence, in the gift of J. G. Williams esq. of Pendley Manor, and held since 1903 by the Rev. Henry Francis M.A. of Exeter College, Oxford.  St. Martha’s, in Park road, erected as a chapel of ease to the parish church, is served by the clergy of Tring: there are 120 sittings.  The Baptist chapel in Western road, founded in 1750, affords 450 sittings; there is also a Strict Baptist chapel in Akeman street, seating 850, and one at New Mill, founded in 1655, and having 600 sittings; Ebenezer Baptist chapel, in Chapel street, will seat 300 persons, and there is a Primitive Methodist chapel, with 100 sittings.  The Church House, in Western road, erected in 1897, is a structure of red brick, from designs by Mr. William Huckvale, architect, of Tring, and is used for concerts &c.  The Cemetery at the west end of the town, provided in 1894, under the “Public Health (Interments) Act, 1879,” is under the management of the Urban Council: there is one chapel: the area is 4a. 3r. 27p.; but no part of the ground has yet been consecrated.

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 J.P. of Pendley Manor, from designs by Mr. Huckvale, and comprises a reading room, two billiard rooms, a committee room and the usual offices.  The ancient Market House, in High street, was taken down, and another Market House erected in 1898 on a site presented by Lord Rothschild at the corner of Akeman street and Western road, in commemoration of the Diamond Jubilee of Her late Majesty Queen Victoria, from the designs of Mr. Huckvale; it is timber-framed in oak, filled in with rough cast, and contains a market hall, 41 by 26 feet, with open market place underneath, surveyor’s office, committee and store rooms.  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 2 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 &, Co. auctioneers.  The business of the town consists chiefly in canvas weaving, straw plaiting and brewing.  The Literary and Scientific Institute, founded in 1849, has a library of 800 volumes and a reading room; there are now (1908) about 31 members.

The Rothschild Museum, erected in 1889, by the Hon. Lionel Walter Rothschild M.P., Ph.D., F.Z.S., consists of the museum itself, containing public galleries and the special collections for scientific research.  The building is a large house of two storeys, access to the upper galleries being obtained by a stone staircase; the museum also contains Mr. Rothschild’s private Natural History collections, but the galleries are open to public inspection on the first three days of the week and on Fridays, and are largely visited; the ground floor is devoted to birds and mammals, and the upper floor to sponges, corals, molluscs, fishes and reptiles; some of the larger mammals and all the antelopes and zebras are also placed there, besides insects and crustaceans.  The collections are now very extensive and are being constantly increased by the labours of collectors in foreign countries; and the arrangement of the specimens is proceeding under the direction of the director 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 taxidermist’s and general workshop; Dr. Ernst Hartert is director, and Dr. Carl Jordan curator of the entomological department.

The Tring Nursing Home occupies premises in Station road, presented by Lady Rothschild, and includes an accident ward; it is vested in two trustees and supported by voluntary contributions.  An Isolation Hospital was erected in 1901 by the Urban District Council, and has eight beds.  The Tring Poor’s Land, formerly consisting of 107a. 3r. 7p. of land and 3 houses, has been sold and the proceeds invested in Consols, producing an annual income of upwards of £180, which is distributed in coal at Christmas.  The other charities, now consolidated, and yielding an income of about £140, are administered under a scheme framed by the Charity Commissioners in 1884, which allows the application of the funds specified in it for the benefit, in various ways, of the poor, but is mainly devoted to 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.  The soil. which rests on the lower chalk formation, varies considerably.

Sexton, Alfred Cogger, 18 Frogmore street.

The area of Tring Urban parish and District is 4.364 acres of land and 43 of water; rateable value, £24.476; the population in 1901 was 4,349.  The population of the ecclesiastical parish in 1901 was 4,667.

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.
