Block Management Hemel Hempstead
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Hemel Hempstead.
History of Hemel Hempstead
Although Hemel Hempstead is a 'new town', the area has a rich history. Originally forested, the land was gradually cleared and there is evidence that Neolithic, Iron Age and Bronze Age people lived in the area, although not all at the same time.
The origin of the word Hemel probably comes from "Haemele", the name of this district in the 8th century (most probably from the name of the person who owned it). It is also suggested that Haemele means the confluence of two rivers, which in this case would be the Gade and the Bulbourne. The book The History of Hemel Hempstead, published by the Hemel Hempstead Local History and Records Society, states: "Hemel Hempstead itself first appears in written records in the eighth century when the lands of the district of Hamele (Haemele is probably a personal name) were on loan from Offa, King of Essex, to the Bishop of London in AD 705. Then, in the appendix of the same book, it says: "First mentioned in the 8th century, this name probably means broken (OE hamol, hamel)." The combined name is called "Hamelamesede" in the Domesday Book , but became Hamelhamsted over the following centuries. The word Hempstead probably derives from "hamstede", which means farm.
The importance of the area in Roman times depended on its proximity to the village of Verulamium (St. Albans). Raw materials were traded and in exchange they bought pottery, wine and cloth from the city merchants. Roman villas have been excavated at Boxmoor and the remains of a large villa with swimming pool have been found in Gadebridge.
There is little concrete evidence of the Saxon occupation of the area, but some documents from the time refer to Hemel Hempstead as "Hamele". In 704 land rights were granted to the Bishop of London by decree of the King of Essex.
Most of the information from this period comes from the "Domesday Book", an investigation conducted on his new land for William the Conqueror in 1086. He informs us that Hemel Hempstead:
* had 1800 hectares of forest
* belonged to Robert, Earl of Mortain (William's half-brother)

Things to do in Hemel Hempstead
Planet Ice Hemel Hempstead is a cozy ice rink ideal for active families who want to ice skate! With dedicated family sessions and open skating times, birthday parties and club nights, there is something here for all types of recreational skaters. Ice skating is a great activity to do together with active families, which is not only fun and enjoyable, but also improves balance, fitness and grace!
But those who want to take it more seriously can also take lessons in figure skating, ice dancing, and ice hockey, so for kids with natural skills, you'll have plenty of room for development and expansion under the guidance of friendly experts. Each of the available disciplines has different benefits for them, but they all help develop children with confidence, balance and fitness - what a great new hobby!

Also, you can get many different types of discounts and bundled savings on procedures, but these discounts are only available to Ice Card holders, so perhaps consider doing so.
And it's always worth keeping an eye on the track during the holidays, as they kindly organize seasonal events and extra special activities to keep the kids entertained and extend their hours so you can have even more fun.
Hemel Hempstead - Cultural Scene
Have you ever visited the old town's main street in Hemel Hempstead? Nope? You get a reward. It's a quirky centre, with cobbled streets, independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Pride of place is occupied by the Old Town Hall, a building that has a patina of laughter and singing from the performances that have brought the house down since 1978. The building itself has been here since 1852. I think it's appropriate to mention the name to set the mood. In addition to Eddie Izzard and company, can I also mention Ruby Wax, Jo Brand, Alan Davies, Ardal O'Hanlon, Kate Beckinsale, Mark Thomas and Lucy Porter? Discover this season's program. I think you will be impressed.
Upon arrival, you will find a 120-seat theatre; a regular program of comedy and music at the Cellar Club and inspiring works of art at the Robert Adams Gallery. And yes, of course there is a cafe with WiFi. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. And don't panic. The bar opens one hour before the evening shows. One last thing, the view of St. Mary's Church which has the tallest spire in the world is truly breathtaking.
