War memorial, StevenageA History of Stevenage - Apart from its nearness to a Roman road, remains and artefacts unearthed in the Stevenage area provide proof of its earlier historical past in long past, undocumented years. Indeed in the course of building work on the Chells Manor area, an enormous hoard in excess of 2,000 Roman coins was uncovered, that came after the discovery of several Roman relics at the time of the building of the New Town itself. The Anglo-Saxons naturally came after the collapse of the Romans and their settlement was built close to the spot where the 1st proper village developed. The Abbott of Westminster Abbey was the Lord of the Manor of "Stigenace", by the time the Domesday Book was written, and a century or so later in twelve eighty one Stevenage became an true town, when it was granted its charter permitting it to hold a weekly market, and also, a yearly "fair", an occasion that's still organised even today.

The St Nicholas Church, the parish church of Stevenage was started during the 12th century, and then significantly improved in the 15th century, at which time a clerestory was added and some very beautiful woodwork and carvings. The very first Grammar School was launched by Thomas Alleyne in fifteen fifty eight, and this remained until the late twentieth century. Almost all the the prosperity of the town resulted from those travelling on the North Road, with plenty of coaching inns becoming established in the town to provide for the large number of stage coaches which passed throughout the 18th and 19th centuries (up to 21 per day). 1857 heralded the coming of the railway and the downfall of the stage coach was nigh, in fact leading to a slowing down of progression for the town.
