The History of Welwyn Garden City

Welwyn Garden City was founded by Sir Ebenezer Howard in the 1920s following his previous experiment in Letchworth Garden City. Sir Ebenezer wanted a widespread creation of planned towns that were to combine the benefits of the city and the countryside and to avoid the disadvantages of both. The Garden Cities and Town Planning Association had defined a garden city as “a town designed for healthy living and industry of a size that makes possible a full measure of social life but not larger, surrounded by a rural belt; the whole of the land being in public ownership, or held in trust for the community”

In 1919, he arranged for the purchase of land in Hertfordshire that had already been identified as a suitable site. The following year, a company named Welwyn Garden City Limited, was formed to plan and build Welwyn Garden City, chaired by Sir Theodore Chambers. Louis de Soissons was appointed as architect and town planner and Frederic Osborn as his secretary. The first house in Welwyn Garden City was occupied just before Christmas 1920.

Welwyn Garden City is laid out along tree lined boulevards with a neo Georgian town centre. It has its own environmental protection legislation, the Scheme of Management for Welwyn Garden City. Every road has a wide grass verge. The spine of the town is Parkway, a central mall or scenic parkway, almost a mile long. The view along Parkway to the south was once described as one of the worlds finest urban vistas. Older houses in Welwyn Garden City are on the west side of Parkway and newer houses on the east side.
