The revival of the Victoria History of Middlesex in 1955 is described in the Editorial Note to Volume III, and later modifications of the arrangements in that to Volume I. The University of London again records its true appreciation of the generous grants made by the Local Authorities. The membership of the Middlesex Victoria County History Council in 1975 is set out below. Mr. G. C. Tyack, appointed Assistant County Editor in 1969, resigned at the end of 1971 and was succeeded by Miss E. P. Bailey (now Mrs. Scarff). Miss Bailey resigned in 1974, when she was succeeded by Mr. (now Dr.) M. A. Hicks.

The present volume is the fifth to be published in the Middlesex set and broadly follows the usual scheme of 'topographical' volumes of the Victoria History. It was begun in 1969, when work was still proceeding on Volume IV. The structure and aims of the Victoria History series as a whole are outlined in the General Introduction to the History.

Many people have helped in the compilation of the volume by providing information or by reading and commenting on parts of the text. Those who have read the drafts of individual parish articles are named in the footnotes. The co-operation of the town clerks, education officers, and librarians of the various Local Authorities is gratefully acknowledged, together with that of their respective staffs. Special thanks are due to the Marquess of Salisbury, for allowing access to material at Hatfield House, to Mr. H. V. Borley, for help with the passages on railways, and to the staff of the Greater London Record Office (Middlesex Records).
