Wheathampstead Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 47 photos

The village of Wheathampstead is a few miles west of Welwyn Garden City. It is reputed to have been the site of the battle at which Julius Caesar defeated the local tribe, known as the Catuvellauni, during his invasion of Britain in 54 BC. The remains of an impressive dyke (known as Devil's Dyke) probably dating from this period, can be visited behind Dyke Lane, a quarter of a mile east of the village centre. The village is picturesque with a nice pub, old mill with the River Lea flowing underneath it, and a lovely cross-shaped church.
