Emmys mummy's Guide to Broxbourne, Hertfordshire
parent bloggers in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire
The Borough of Broxbourne is steeped in history with many beautiful sites and buildings.

The hamlet of Broxbourne, from which the Borough takes its name, contains St Augustine’s Church, built in the early 15th Century. Behind the Church are the remains of Broxbourne Mill, which was first mentioned in 1086 in the Domesday Book. A footpath from the Church leads to the Broxbourne conservation area and the New River Heritage Trail. The New River which starts in Ware and ends in Islington, runs the entire length of the Borough of Broxbourne and was built between 1608 and 1613 to take drinking water from local springs to London by Hugh Myddelton. In 1611, King James I put up half the cost of building the New River and allowed it to flow through his palace at Theobalds (once sited in Cedars Park). Still fulfilling its original purpose it is a beautiful place for riverside walks. Broxbourne is remembered as the place where Team GB won the Gold and Silver medals in the canoe slalom events during the London 2012 Olympic Games as it is the home of the Lee Valley White Water Centre, a world class sporting facility for white water rafting and canoeing. The centre is located on the edge of the Lee Valley Regional Park in Waltham Cross and is open to the general public.
