About Much Hadham
Much Hadham Parish Council represents the areas of Much Hadham, Perry Green and Green Tye.
Much Hadham is situated in East Hertfordshire between Ware and Bishop’s Stortford. The historic village is set along a mile long road making it one of the longest villages in England, with numerous amenities such as a very good pub, a village shop, a museum and a garage.
The attractiveness and tidyness of the village has been rewarded with the prestigious title of Hertfordshire’s best kept village.
Many of the houses are of architectural interest with the earliest houses dating to the 15th century. Many of the iconic buildings of the village have retained their external character and names such as ‘The Old Bakery’ and ‘Collarmakers House’
The village has two churches. The larger parish church, which was built largely between 1225 and 1450 is an ecumenical serving both the Catholic and protestant communities.
There is also a very good parochial primary school called Saint Andrews which serves the majority of the children in the village. There is also a nursery situated in the grounds of St Andrews.
