"Lovely ancient village" Wheathampstead by colin_bramso
Wheathampstead Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 47 photos
The village is recorded in the famous Domesday Book, the massive survey and record of England which was completed in 1086.
Today it's a prosperous village with a good selection of shops and restaurants. There's an interesting mixture of architectural styles spanning hundreds of years making it an attractive place to wander around. The Bull pub is said to date back to the 13th Century.
St Helen's, right in the centre of the village, is a Grade 1 listed 13th/14th century church.
A river runs under the High Street, with an old mill, and is full of fish - on the side where fishing is not allowed. On the side where fishing is permitted there are none - and you thought fish weren't clever!
