Harpenden Local History Society are holding a talk next week on the history of Childwickbury.
The tiny private village between St Albans and Harpenden was owned by the Toulmin family in the 19th century.
More recently it was the residence of film director Stanley Kubrick, until his death in 1999.
The director finished his films Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut in the hamlet.
His wife Christiane, a local artist, still lives in the village’s manor house.
