the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

St Paul's Walden is a village about 5 miles (8 km) south of Hitchin in Hertfordshire, England. The civil parish of St Paul's Walden also includes the village of Whitwell and the hamlet of Bendish.

St Paul's Walden has two 18th-century mansions, both standing in parks of great beauty: Stagenhoe (once owned by the Earls of Caithness) and St Paul's Walden Bury (owned by the Bowes-Lyon family), which some say was the birthplace of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. Indeed, she was baptised in the All Saints church in St Paul's Walden.
