About Hemel Hempstead:

Hemel Hempstead is a historic town, later developed as a new town, in Hertfordshire, England. Located 24 miles northwest of London, it is part of the Greater London Urban Area. According to the 2019 Census, Hemel Hempstead has a population of about 97,500. Developed after the Second World War as a new town, it has existed as a settlement since the 8th century and was granted its town charter by King Henry VIII in 1539. It is part of the district of Dacorum and the Hemel Hempstead constituency. It is surrounded by other cities, towns and villages such as Watford, St Albans, Hatfield, Hitchin and Berkhamsted. This settlement was called by the name Hean-Hempstead in Anglo-Saxon times and in William the Conqueror’s time by the name of Hemel-Amstede. In the Domesday Book it is referred to as “Hamelamestede”, but in later centuries it became Mamelhamsted, and possibly, Hemlamstede. In Old English, “stead” or “stede” simply meant a place, such as the site of buildings or pasture, as in clearing in the woods, and this suffix is used in the names of their English places such as Hempstead and Berkhamsted. After the Second World War, in 1946, the government designated Hemel Hempstead as the site of one of its proposed new towns designed to house the population displaced by the London Blitz, since slums and bomb sites were being cleared in London. On 4th February 1947, the Government purchased 5,910 acres of land and began work on the “New Town”. Hemel Hempstead has gone through a lot of developments since the new town. Jarman Park, the central location for leisure in the town, was previously agricultural land, which later became fields named after former town councilor and mayor, Henry Jarman, who oversaw the development of the New Town. The former John Dickinson Stationery mills site, straddling the canal at Apsley, was redeveloped with two retail parks, a Sainsbury’s supermarket, 3 low rise office blocks, housing, a mooring basin, and a hotel, and also an office block was built. An indoor shopping mall was developed adjacent to the south end of Marlowe’s retail area in 1990, and in 2005 the Riverside development designed by Bernard Engle Architects was opened effectively extending the main shopping precinct towards the Plough Roundabout. The new center includes several outlets for national retailers including Debenhams, Starbucks, Waterstones and others. Since the 2005 Buncefield fire the former Maylands Avenue factory estate, which was badly affected by the fire, has been rebranded as Maylands Business Park and a 40-tonne sculpture by Jose Zavala called Phoenix Gateway placed on the first roundabout off the M1 to symbolize its renewal. Hemel Hempstead has a mixture of heavy and light engineering companies and has attracted a significant number of information technology and telecommunications sector companies helped by its proximity to London and the UK motorway network. However, it has a much narrower business base than established centers, particularly Watford and St. Albans.
