Welcome to the community website for the civil parish of Little Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. As well as the village of Little Berkhamsted, the parish includes the hamlets of Epping Green and Howe Green. The website is sponsored by the parish council for the entire community.

With a population of around 560, Little Berkhamsted is located in the district of East Herts, Hertfordshire, in beautiful countryside near the county town of Hertford. The village has an interesting history and can trace its past to Saxon times. It was in Little Berkhamsted that William the Conqueror accepted the surrender of the City of London after the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

The thriving village community has a parish church, St Andrew’s, two pubs; The Beehive in Epping Green and The Five Horseshoes, a cricket club, and a village store. The parish is criss-crossed with public footpaths and bridleways and is a lovely place to live, work and visit.


Over the next few months many of us may need to self-isolate. We have a list of good neighbours happy to run various errands, collect prescriptions, do shopping, walk the dog etc. for those confined to home.

You should have received a leaflet through the door with the name and phone number of your neighbour. Please call or text them if you need help (for free).
