Letchworth, officially Letchworth Garden City, is a town in Hertfordshire, England, with a population of 33,600. It is a former civil parish, abolished on 31 March 2013. The town's name is taken from one of the three villages it surrounded (the other two being Willian and Norton) – all of which featured in the Domesday Book. The land used was purchased by Quakers who had intended to farm the area and build a Quaker community. The town was laid out by Raymond Unwin as a demonstration of the principles established by Ebenezer Howard who sought to create an alternative to the industrial city by combining the best of town and country living. It is also home to the United Kingdom's first roundabout, which was built in 1909.

  • Die englische Stadt Letchworth in der Grafschaft Hertfordshire war der erste Realisierungsversuch einer Gartenstadt. Sie wurde im Jahr 1903 rund 60 Kilometer nördlich von London gegründet. Die Planungen wurden von Barry Parker und Raymond Unwin durchgeführt.Die Gesamtfläche besteht aus 2057 Hektar und die Freiflächen innerhalb der Stadt 52 Hektar Land. Letchworth sollte die neuen sozialreformerischen Ansätze, die Ebenezer Howard an den Städtebau gestellt hatte, erfüllen. Zur Bildung einer eigenständigen kleinstädtischen Einheit wurde eine eigene Industrie angelegt. Allerdings war diese Stadt nie autark, sondern von Anfang an von London abhängig. Heute leben in der Stadt 33.249 Einwohner (Stand 2011). Die offizielle englische Bezeichnung lautet Letchworth Garden City. Die Stadt ist Verwaltungssitz des Distrikts North Hertfordshire. (de)

  • Letchworth Garden City, o più comunemente Letchworth, è una città dell'Inghilterra fondata da Raymond Unwin che nel 1903 mise in pratica le idee di Ebenezer Howard sulla creazione di ideali città giardino. Situata a 50 chilometri a nord di Londra, fu meta delle ricche famiglie londinesi in fuga dalla caotica capitale inglese. Nel 1915 venne fondata la St Christopher School situata in St. Christopher road, per anni questo college fu uno dei più importanti in Inghilterra. Proprio in una casa poco distante da lì nacque e visse durante la sua infanzia il grande attore Laurence Olivier. La casa si chiamava Arunwood. Nella speranza che nascessero altri attori come lui, gli abitanti della cittadina costruirono altre case con lo stesso prefisso di Arunwood chiamate Arunbank, Arunside, Arundale e Little Arundale. Non nacquero attori in queste case, ma venne dall'Italia la giovane Maria Montessori a studiare in una di queste. Una volta diventata famosa venne aggiunto al nome della casa Arundale l'acronimo MD che sta per Montessori Department. Oggi queste case sono di proprietà del college e ospitano studenti stranieri nel periodo estivo. La strada principale della cittadina si chiama Broadway ed è un viale somigliante a quelli alberati statunitensi. Nella piazza principale c'è il municipio con lo Science museum (museo della scienza). La città è ben collegata con quelle vicine con la sua stazione ferroviaria e con l'autostrada M1. La sua vicinanza con l'aeroporto di Luton (solo 10 km) favorisce il turismo dai paesi stranieri. (it)

It is also home to the United Kingdom's first roundabout, which was built in 1909. As one of the world's first new towns and the first garden city it had great influence on future town planning and the New towns movement; it influenced Welwyn Garden City, which used a similar approach and inspired other projects around the world including Canberra, the Australian capital, Hellerau, Germany, small village of Tapanila, Finland, and Mežaparks in Latvia.) There is a link to town planning in the Soviet Union Stalingrad through the architect Semionov and a curious, possible if improbable, account of Lenin visiting the town when he visited England for a congress of the Russian Bolshevik party, then banned in Russia.
