Croxley Green

Croxley Green is a village in Hertfordshire between Watford and Rickmansworth. Croxley is about 20 miles north-west of London and is popular as a commuter village, Croxley Station being on the Metropolitan Line.

Croxley Green's central feature is a large village green of almost 19½ acres, surrounded by some of its oldest buildings. On the Green are held many events in the summer, most famously "Revels on The Green", an annual village fair. Other events on the Green include a firework display on New Year's Eve organised by the Parish Council. Beside the Green is a historic orchard.

The parish has 18 designated public footpaths a total of 5 miles long mainly through woodlands and adjacent countryside within the parish boundary. (Read more)
