Little Wymondley Overview

Little Wymondley is an historic village based between the historic market town of Hitchin and the new town of Stevenage, around 42km north of London. Nothing much goes on here, but centuaries ago, a certain King Henry the Eighth came through the village on a deer hunt (hunting for the famous Hertfordshire deer) and fell in the nearby pond at Wymondleybury. The picture of this is shown on the BUCKS HEAD public house (which local people say the place is haunted by the 'BLACK HOOD') on the high street. The other public house is the PLUME OF FEATHERS.

At Wymondleybury, at the site of a former animal slaughter house, is the famous OAK TREE which is still there after 600 years. Other places to note is the PRIORY, a ruin on the outskirts of the village, St Mary's church and the main receration park up on Tower Close, which has modern tennis courts and provides football pitches during the football season.

Buses serves the village between the two towns (80 and 101) and Wymondley is just off the main A1(M), the main road between London and Scotland. There are no shops or post office here anymore, but the village has a carpet shop, car sales and an antiques shop if any tourists want to have a look.
