Location - Reed

Reed is a picturesque parish village in North Hertfordshire, sitting on a chalk ridge at almost the highest point in Hertfordshire, approximately 3 miles from the popular market town of Royston and 16 miles from the famous city of Cambridge.

A settlement has reportedly existed at Reed for 2,000 years, with the community being mentioned in the Domesday Book. It is built in an unusual pattern around a central meadow, giving it an open and spacious appearance. To the east of the village is the Prime Meridian, and the village enjoys what’s called the “Greenwich Meridian Trail”, a long-distance footpath that passes through, as well as various ancient woodlands, including Bush Wood, Rocky Wood, Sallow Wood and Roundabout. There are well-marked footpaths around the village, giving residents further opportunity to enjoy the wonderful views, particularly from Reed Joint, looking north towards the Cambridgeshire Fens. On a clear day, you can even see the tower of Ely Cathedral, some 30 miles away!

Reed boasts many clubs and societies, including cricket, carpet bowls, singing, line dancing, gardening, cooking and reading. The church of St Mary has been a place of worship for Reed villagers for over 1,000 years and is still active today, with regular services and activities. There is also Reed First School for children from Early Years to Middle School, and a village hall which is available for hire.

The village’s proximity to Royston means that residents have access to the town’s many other amenities, such as the mainline train station offering regular fast services to both Cambridge and London Kings Cross. There is also a leisure centre, sports clubs, dentist’s surgeries, and highly-regarded schools for all ages. The A1M and M11 are within a 15-minute drive via the A10/A505, and London Stansted and Luton Airports are both 30-minutes away.

We encourage you to visit Reed to see for yourself the wonderful features this picturesque village has to offer.
