Boxmoor is a village near Hemel Hempstead which has its own distinct identity and character. While larger town amenities are located about half a mile to the east, St.John’s Road offers a good selection of local independent retailers including a pharmacy, post office, off licence and florist. There are several local public houses and cafés including the Fishery Inn and Fishery Wharf café which overlook the canal. Boxmoor enjoys excellent access to the national road network (A41) and is served by regular public buses and mainline rail services to London Euston (under 30 mins). Boxmoor derives its name from the Box tree which is linked with ‘mor’, signifying a marsh. The ancient meadowlands are still a feature of the locality and today are under the stewardship of the Box Moor Trust (Est.1594). There are many wonderful walks across the meadowlands, along the Grand Union Canal and the Bulbourne river, and beyond into the delightful Chiltern countryside.
