The village stands between the rivers Maran and Lea, adjacent to the Hertford and Dunstable railway, 2 miles WSW of Hertford; and has a station on the railway, and a post office under Hertford. The parish contains also the hamlets of EastEnd, Stains-Green, Cole-Green, Birch-Green, and LettyGreen. ...

The manor was given, at the Conquest, to Philip de Valoines; passed to the Duchy of Lancaster; and, with Panshanger House, belongs now to Earl Cowper. An oak, nearly 20 feet in girth at 5 feet from the ground, is in Panshanger park. The living is a rectory, united with the chapelry of Letty-Green, in the diocese of Rochester.
