Knebworth lies near the southernmost edge of the North Hertfordshire district, between Stevenage to the North and Old Welwyn to the South.
It is likely that a small community may have been started at Knebworth between the 5th and 7th centuries, inhabited by Saxons. The first written evidence of occupation is in the Doomsday Book when it was called Chenepworde – meaning the farm belonging to Cnebba. The census taken in 1086 indicated a population of about 153 people. Census figures for 1991 showed an increase to 4,028 and a further increase to 4,433 according to the 2001 census (still under review).
Knebworth House, one of the great historic houses of Hertfordshire, stands in the grounds of Knebworth Park (Old Knebworth) and has been home to the Lytton family for over 500 years. The grounds now form a Country Park with picnic areas and many other facilities, which together with the house are open to the public. It has been the venue for many Pop and Classical concerts over the years including Robbie Williams & Oasis.
Knebworth boasts 3 inns:- The Roebuck at Broadwater is the eldest, possibly dating back to 1420; the Lytton Arms, Old Knebworth, circa 1840, (the present building was erected in 1887), and the Station Hotel built in 1883.
More than 70 clubs and organisations are listed in the current Knebworth Directory, and there is a wide variety of local shops and businesses centered around the main London - Stevenage Road (B197).
Nearby towns include: Stevenage (approx 3.5 miles North), Welwyn Garden City (approx 5 miles South) and the county Town of Hertford (approx 10 Miles East)
