   Home to over 80,000 residents, the Hertfordshire town of Hemel Hempstead is known as a New Town but has been an important geographical and industrial location for far longer: as a halfway point between the capital and the Midlands and long linked to both by road, rail and even canal.

The town grew exponentially after World War 2 to house those bombed out during the Blitz and, because of this, has mostly fairly modern architecture dominating its centre. Due to the fact that it is a New Town, Hemel Hempstead is laid out with ease of usage and suburban tranquility in mind and, as such, is a very green place to be.

At this point in time Hemel Hempstead is a key national centre for IT and telecoms companies which, alongside engineering firms, provide much of the local employment.
