The Hundred Parishes

The Hundred Parishes is an area of interest like the Cotswolds or The Chilterns. It recognises a number of parishes in North Essex, South Cambridgeshire and West Hertfordshire of high quality, old and listed buildings, attractive countryside and natural beauty. A group are currently asking the local councils involved for these areas to receive greater recognition from a tourism perspective and a web site is currently being created to promote all the towns and villages therein.
