Stevenage, a town and borough in Hertfordshire, England, is one exciting place that currently holds over 80,000 people in its area. Here is a short piece on its history and some places you can visit when at Stevenage.

In August of 1946, Stevenage was named the first New Town under the New Towns Act. It later became the home of the League Two football club Stevenage F.C. in 1976 – the year the football club was founded. Throughout the years of being a town, names like Lewis Hamilton, the F1 star, and Jack Wilshere, the professional footballer, have come from the place and developed into big names in their respected industries.
