Three Rivers District Council are currently proposing the reintroduction of grazing on the Common, which would mean the partial enclosure, or fencing off, of sections of the common.

With the boom in the paper and printing industries, on which much of south-western Hertfordshire's economy was based in the 19th century, came new prosperity. The extension of the Metropolitan Railway to Chorleywood on 8 July 1889 brought with it population growth, which continued until the 1960s. From a population of 1,500 people in 1897, the population has grown to over 11,000 today.

With the success of The King Stag, David and Robert started looking for a new pub. After a year of looking they fell in love with the White Horse and realised with a bit of TLC it could be a great community pub.

At a county level, Chorleywood is part of Hertfordshire. At the County Council, a larger Chorleywood constituency, including the parish of Chorleywood, but also all of Sarratt parish and part of the parish of Abbots Langley, is represented by Chris Hayward of the Conservatives.

In January 2013 brothers-in-law Robert Beckley and David Warren decided to make their dream a reality and open a gastro pub in their hometown Bushey. They wanted to create a community pub where local people could come at any time of day for a coffee or a pint or a meal – or all three.

The grounds of Chorleywood House now form a 170-acre (0.69 km2) public park.[5]

Chorleywood is most famous for its Quakers. Non-conformists flocked to Chorleywood, promised sanctuary by the locals. William Penn founded the Pennsylvania Colony with settlers from Chorleywood, Rickmansworth, and nearby towns in southern Buckinghamshire, having lived and married in Chorleywood.[3]

Chorleywood is a part of the parliamentary constituency of Hertfordshire South West, which is represented in the House of Commons by Chorleywood resident David Gauke of the Conservatives.[6]

Serving fantastic food is a priority at The White Horse. Robert is an experienced chef who has worked with top names such as Mike North of the Nut Tree, Chris Barber (ex head chef of the Prince of Wales), Heston Blumenthal and Michel Roux Jr.


We have the following Open Mornings available for prospective parents to come and have a look around the school as well as meet Mrs Roberts, our Head Teacher, and hear from the current pupils.

A large influx of Saxon settlers in Chorleywood led to it being an important town. The Saxons called it 'Cerola Leah', meaning a meadow in a clearing.[3] Through Chorleywood runs the line that once divided the Kingdoms of Mercia and Wessex and now divides the counties of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Edward the Confessor gave the town of Chorleywood to the Monastery of St Albans.[3]

The White Horse is a newly refurbished family run gastro pub in Chorleywood which prides itself on its atmosphere and attention to detail. You’ll find a range of six individually sourced draught ales, craft lagers and ciders behind the bar and fresh food cooked on site from local produce coming out of the kitchen.

By 1278, it was known as 'Bosco de Cherle' or 'Churl's Wood', Norman for 'Peasant's Wood'.[3] Upon the Dissolution of the Monasteries, it passed to the Bishopric of London, being renamed 'Charleywoode'. It became Crown property during the reign of Elizabeth I. The Turnpike Act (1663) gave Chorleywood a chance to exploit its strategic position, allowing locals the opportunity to charge civilians to use the road from Hatfield to Reading.[3]

The town has grown remarkably in the past century, thanks primarily to the extension of the Metropolitan line of the London Underground, which reached Chorleywood in 1889. Junction 18 of the M25 motorway, with the A404, is at Chorleywood.

A Regency mansion called Chorleywood House was built here in 1822 by John Barnes, replacing an earlier farm house. John Saunders Gilliat, who was Governor of the Bank of England in 1883-1885, lived in this house. In 1892, the house was bought by Lady Ela Sackville Russell, eldest daughter of the 9th Duke of Bedford. She modified and enlarged the house, turning the grounds into a model estate with market gardens.

Chorleywood Common is a tract of 0.8 square kilometres (200 acres) of wooded common land. The common is a County Heritage Site, with significant biodiversity. Since cattle grazing ended soon after the First World War, the land has been used for recreational purposes. Chorleywood Golf Club maintains a nine-hole golf course on the Common. In the 19th century, the MCC established a cricket pitch on the Common, which is used by Chorleywood Cricket Club's senior and junior teams to this day.

The recent refurbishment was completed in July 2015, it blends the country with London reflecting that this is commuter belt and local people will be dining in London and will hopefully be looking for something similar close to home. The upgrades to the inside of the pub will continue over 2015-2016 to make the pub as comfortable as possible and to suit locals requirements. We now have a second courtyard area on the side of the pub which again will keep evolving over the coming months.

In the early 1960s, researchers at the British Baking Industries Research Association in Chorleywood improved upon an earlier American bread making process. This resulted in the Chorleywood Bread Process, which is now used in over 80% of commercial bread production throughout the UK.[2]

Settlement at Chorleywood dates to the Paleolithic era, when the plentiful flint supply led to swift development of tools by early man. The Romans built a small village on the ancient site, complete with a mill and brewery. The likely ruins of a Roman villa are thought to lie under the M25 motorway, which passes through the outskirts of Chorleywood.[3]
