This beautiful church in the town of Hemel Hempstead took some 3 years to build and was started in 1140. It is cruciform in shape with a chancel and the spire is one of the tallest in Europe and was added in the 14th century with a total height of 200 feet. It is built from local clunch stone and flint with some roman bricks.It houses a Walker organ which was refurbished in 2008 A lovely church to explore and look around nestled in Gadebridge park

Jellicoe Water Gardens

Reviewed By Footprints823199 - Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom

Wander along the path way here and you could forget that you are in Hemel Hempstead. The planting has been beautifully undertaken and whenever I have taken this route it has always been clean and tidy. There are lots of seating areas too. There is a wooden childrens play area for families and plenty of plants and flowers for everyone to identify or to admire. It is also a lovely way to get from the main town into the Old Town and to Gadebridge Park

The Three Horseshoes

Reviewed By harpies - Harpenden, United Kingdom

Booked for 12 of us for sunday lunch. We were required to pre order starters and main courses. Stopped here towards end of fab 6/7 mile walking starting in Hemel and travelling via boxmoor/bovingdon/little hay golf course (might be wrong order!) Group had a few starters including mushrooms (delicous v peppery), pate and prawn skewer that looked amazing! Burgers, roasts, salads,scampi all good sized portions served very hot and all those eating had clear plates at the end..the ultimate recommendation. A few were able to enjoy after the chocolate cake ,treacle tart and what looked the best to me, the Apple crumble!!

Hemel Hempstead Town

Reviewed By therichastill - Stevenage, United Kingdom

Like Stevenage and Harlow, Hemel Hempstead is a town of two halves. There is the historic Old Town and the newer town. The High Street in Hemel has lots of nice little pubs and shops and some nice old buildings if you are a fan of historic architecture. The "new" town is developed in the Sixties and some areas of it are dated but there are also some nice shopping areas as well. If you want a bit of retail therapy this is the area to visit.
