Walkern School Log Book is a mine of information about day to day life in a Hertfordshire village in the second half of the 19th century.  In addition to the wealth of information on pupils and teachers and the running of the school, it also tells of poverty and illness in the village, the farming year, and local events and celebrations. It is invaluable to those interested in education and local history and helpful to people researching their family history.
