Mill End, Hertfordshire

Mill End is a village of Hertfordshire which is in effect a southerly extension of Rickmansworth.

It is mainly residential. Mil End has though has a main parade of shops, the Moneyhill Parade, a rather bland set on the road between Rickmansworth and Maple Cross (though whether Mill End and Moneyhill are separate in concept, or whether either is separate from Rickmansworth, will be left to local folk to argue after hours).

The number of pubs in Mill End bear witness to its position on what was a main route between Uxbridge and Rickmansworth before the M25 motorway was built. Otherwise Mill End is residential.

Mill End stands on the bank of the River Colne (across which lies Middlesex), so that the backs of the shops along the parade and the gardens of the pubs are on riverbank meadows. The river once provided the power for paper mills, which gave Mill End its name. None is found now.


The parish church is St Peter's, which is part of the Parish of Mill End and Heronsgate with West Hyde and Maple Cross in the Diocese of St Albans.
