Hemel Hempstead is a town in three parts. Firstly the new shopping precinct and then the old High Street – much more interesting and the vast park.

The newer bit is like any other town centre but an effort has beeen made with the most recent additions

Memorial garden in the midst of the precinct

The Old High Street   Notice the absence of people   Lots of restaurants, few antique shops, hairdressers and a couple of cafes



The park and gardens with the best begonias I’ve seen in years



And this reminded us of the Magic Roundabout in Swindon!

We had a fantastic visit to Frogmore Paper Mill.  Definitly worth a visit. It was just a short walk along the towpath near Apsley Visitor Moorings



We learned about elephant poo paper too!

I loved these exhibits.  All made from paper. I was longing to get my hands into some papier mache


The fire engine an important piece of equipment

Stopped off at Sunnyside A gardening and cafe enterprise that employs adults with a learning disability. Loved the mural.

And here are the view from our mooring
