Aerial Force enjoy working within England’s different towns, and we also enjoy learning about the history behind how the town has been formed. When researching Stevenage, we learnt lots of information about the town, and this has helped us to form a close-knit bond with the citizens and our customers.
Stevenage lies 32.9 miles north of Central London and is regarded as a ‘new town’ which means that it has been developed into an urban area. As a result of this taking place (within the 1960s / 1970s), Stevenage’s population has expanded exponentially, and since the start of the 20th century, it has gone from having around 4,000 residents, to now having nearly 85,000 residents (as of 2011).
The history of Stevenage appears to date to Roman times, as (in 1986), silver roman coins were discovered in the town. We have knowledge that a Saxon camp was formed, and this is where the church, manor house and the first village was built in the area.
In 1500, the church was improved and – in 1558 – a free grammar school was opened for boys which suggest that the 16th century saw a period of relative prosperity for Stevenage as they focussed on education and religion. However, the town prospered a lot more during the 18th century, when a turnpike road was built in Stevenage.
As with so many of the towns and cities around England, the arrival of the train signified a growth in population and employment around Stevenage. The Great Northern Railway (GNR) in 1857 helped the town to grow slowly through the 19th century, even though the arrival of the railway meant the beginning of the end for local coach services that previously supplied transport to many of Stevenage’s residents.
After the second world war, plans were introduced for the reconstruction of London, and within these plans included the building of several new towns around the London area. Stevenage was one such new town to be built, despite controversy and people trying to obstruct the change. In order to change Stevenage into a new town, buildings had to be demolished to make way for the changes. Stevenage celebrated 60 years of being a new town, during 2016 and it hosts a number of events such as ‘Stevenage Day.’

More about Stevenage
In addition to these events, visitors to Stevenage can also enjoy a further range of attractions and do not necessarily need to go as far as London city centre in order to find entertainment. The ‘Gordon Craig Theatre’ regularly shows many plays from its expert members and performers, and this ensures that visitors receive a great evening out whatever they are viewing!
The ‘Cromer Windmill’ is also situated nearby, and this attracts visitors who are particularly interested in industry and how we used to do things. Windmill’s are often met with mixed reactions – some finding them attractive and some feeling the opposite, but Windmill’s are an important part of England’s past and provide an educational source of entertainment.
The Stevenage museum is a good place to go for people wanting to learn more about Stevenage’s past, and for people particularly interested in walking in the fresh air, the Fairlands Valley Park or Benington Lordship Gardens offer beautiful flowers and views so that you can enjoy a stroll in peaceful and tranquil surroundings! Furthermore, ‘Church Farm’ is great for people wanting to experience the outdoors, and get closer to rural life – particularly for families and smaller children.
Children will also love going to ‘Partyman world of play’ where they can play in the ball pool, or enjoy sliding down the chute! They can also be entertained at the ‘Cineworld’ complex, or enjoy an afternoon at the local bowling alley.
For people who love sport, the Lamex Stadium is home to Stevenage Borough Football Club, who play their games in League Two – the fourth tier of English football.
