Fields End is a hamlet in Hertfordshire, to the northwest of Hemel Hempstead, just beyond Warner's End on Boxted Road.

Fields End consisted largely of agricultural fields until planning permission was granted for a new residential estate to begin construction on green belt land between Warner's End and Potten End in the 1980s. The estate was completed in the late 1990s, with Dacorum council having made several attempts to continue to develop the remaining agricultural land of Fields End Farm in the intervening years.

Attempts to develop the fields around Fields End continue to be investigated by the local council, though formal objections have been registered.

The site of Fields End Primary School, once on the corner of Fields End Lane and Boxted Road now sits under the Fields End estate housing development which was constructed in the early 1990s.

Neighbouring towns are the Hemel Hempstead district of Warners End and the villages of Potten End and Little Heath.
