Icknield Way


Probably the most difficult street to present in the tour. It has so many different characters as it passes across Letchworth.

This page is the central section, between Norton Way North and Bridge Road the road is busy but the houses face Norton Common, so this is (in my opinion) the nicest part.

I have only included a few of the most distinctive examples of the many and varied cottage designs to be found here.
