This is where I'm living now!

<font color=blue>Letchworth</font>, the first garden city in the world, was founded by Ebenezer Howard in 1903. After nearly 100 years went through, the town prepares to celebrate its centenary in 2003.

Letchworth played an important role in the development of modern urban planning theory and practice throughout the 20th century. The principles applied when planning Letchworth were an experiment to try and overcome the problems of overcrowded , unhealthy cities, depressed rural areas and the poor building standards prevailing in some areas by the end of the Victorian era. Those principles have had an influence on British and International planners for almost 100 years.

My home now. :-)
