Letter of Commendation. This goes to Red Gables, a house which is part of the Rothamsted estate and which is visible from West Common. It has recently been renovated inside and outside with smart new paint and newly repainted gates. The house was built in 1907 and was built by and was the home and studio of Frank Salisbury, Harpenden’s famous portrait painter and stained glass designer. There is a stained glass window of his design (although the original was stolen) just visible from the road.
