Welcome to Reed

A beautiful village in North Hertfordshire

Reed is a small village and civil parish in North Hertfordshire. It is situated on a chalk ridge at almost the highest point in the county, approximately 3 miles south of the market town of Royston. The Prime Meridian passes just to the east of the village, between Reed and Barkway. The modern A10 road (here following the course of the Roman Ermine Street) passes just to the west of the village. Reed boasts a school, a village hall, the Saxon parish church of St. Mary, a small chapel (now closed and in private ownership), a cricket club and a village pub and restaurant set in a 16th-century inn which is currently closed pending planning applications. A converted windmill also stands in the village. 310 residents were recorded as living in 134 households in Reed in the United Kingdom Census 2011. A settlement has reportedly existed at Reed for 2,000 years, and the community was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 (as Retth). A number of houses in the village boast the remnants of ancient moats, and the village includes a number of ancient woods on its outskirts. Reed was awarded protected status as a conservation area in 1974.

How to find Reed

Reed is approximately 40 miles north of central London. It is served by the A10. The nearest railway station is at Royston, about 4 miles to the north. Buses (Centrebus No 18 service) from Royston to Reed are available, but they are infrequent. Taxis from Royston might be more convenient.
