Park Information

The heart of Chipperfield Village, Chipperfield Common mostly comprises of secondary woodland that has established on what was once heath land grazed by local people up until the 1930’s.

The Common contains a number of significant historical landscape features including ponds, two early Bronze Age burial mounds and a number of historic trees, some of which date back to the 1600’s. All the village’s facilities, including the cricket ground and pavilion, the War Memorial, St Paul’s Church and Blackwells cafe are easily accessible from the Common.  

A network of public and permissive footpaths and bridleways run through the Common. These include a one mile Easy Access Route, which is accessed from the Cricket Ground Car Park on The Common (road), and takes in some of the Common’s main features.

Chipperfield Common was gifted by the Blackwell family, who lived in Chipperfield, to the Hemel Hempstead Rural District Council in 1936 on the understanding that they should “take great care to consult local feeling so far as the management of The Common is concerned in the future”. The Common is now maintained by Dacorum Borough Council in cooperation with Chipperfield Parish Council for the benefit of the people of Chipperfield and the wider community.
