Bovingdon

Village in England » Hertfordshire

Bovingdon is an attractive village on the edge of the Chilterns, midway between Hemel Hempstead and Chesham. Bovingdon's most recognisable landmark is the timber memorial protecting the village well at the bottom of the High Street. It commemorates the life of Granville Dudley Ryder who helped provide the village with piped water in the early 19th century.

The first church was built in 1235 but Bovingdon did not become a separate parish from Hemel Hempstead until 1833. The St Lawrence Church of England is a splendid building with a large churchyard. It was rebuilt in 1845 with the exception of the tower, under which is placed an early fifteenth-century effigy of a knight.

Bovingdon Airfield was developed in 1941 and used as a base for the US Air Force during the Second World War. Among the visitors to the base were Big Band leader, Glenn Miller and Hollywood actor, Clark Gable. The runways still exist today but the hangers were replaced by HM Prison, 'The Mount', in 1988. The airfield is now home to Bovingdon Market and also used for Short Circuit racing.
