Information about Little Hadham

Little Hadham is a village and civil parish in the district of East Hertfordshire and at the time of the 2011 census, it had a population of 1,153.  In 2022, the A120 by-pass was completed, along with a flood aleviation scheme, which has benefited parts of the area.

The village of Little Hadham is located along the A120 and connects to the nearby town of Bishops Stortford three miles away and the town of Ware six miles away.  Central London is 35 miles by road along the A10 making it possible to commute into London. Cambridge is also accessible via A10 and rail.  The nearest rail link is in Bishops Stortford. LIttle Hadham has an ageing population with house prices above average for the area.  

Little Hadham is made up of eight hamlets; The Ash, The Ford, Westland Green, Bury Green, Green Street, Cradle End, Hadham Hall and Church End and covers an area of approximately 12 square miles in a largely rural area.   The villages nearest to Little Hadham are Albury and Much Hadham.  Other nearby villages include Widford, Stanstead Abbotts, Standon, Puckeridge, Braughing and The Pelhams.

One of the aims of the village hall management committee is to try and bring these hamlets together in community-based activities and efforts are also made to try and create links between village halls sited within the Ash Valley, in the hope that management committees and volunteers can work together for the benefit of the local and wider community.

Our Village Hall

Built in 1972, with a Constitution forming part of a conveyance dated 24 November 1970, Little Hadham Village Hall Trust celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2022.  The hall is the heart of the community with regular bookings every week for a wide range of events, activities and clubs. Located with the hamlet known as The Ford and sited off the A120, the village hall benefits from a large carpark and it is adjacent to a children's play park and a grassed area owned by the Parish Council.  


With the support of grantors, local business, and local fundraising efforts over the past two years we have been able to reach important refurbishment goals.  A new kitchen has been donated and installed by Clarion Futures and grants to support replacement windows and doors and curtains from EHDC, Garfield Weston, Low Carbon Workspace and Clarion Futures. Our thanks also to Hertfordshire Community Foundation (HCF), who awarded us a grant to buy two exterior storage containers. 

We continue to apply for grant funding throughout the year to support refurbishment and community well-being projects. Our thanks go to HCF, Little Hadham Parish Council and Much Hadham Health Centre, for supporting our warm space initiative for 2023, known as Warm Welcome Cafe.
