More about Wheathampstead
The population of the Ward of Wheathampstead, at the time of the 2001 Census, was 6,058 including several nearby hamlets.
The village is recorded in the Domesday Book, under the name Watamestede. It appears that a church existed at Wheathampstead before the Norman Conquest, as Wheathampstead was given by Edward the Confessor to Westminster Abbey; it is very difficult to determine whether any portion of the present St Helen's Church is of Saxon work as the original structure was demolished during the reign of Henry III. The oldest portion of the present church, within the chancel, is assigned to the year 1280.
