Hertsmere is a local government district and borough in Hertfordshire, England. Its council is located in Borehamwood. Other towns in the borough include Bushey, Elstree, Radlett and Potters Bar. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Hertsmere area.
The district was formed on 1st April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, by a merger of the former area of Bushey Urban District and Potters Bar Urban District with Elstree Rural District, and also part of Watford Rural District (the parish of Aldenham).
The name “Hertsmere” was invented for the new district by mixing the name of the county with “mere”, an archaic word for boundary. The name is doubly appropriate as the area is now the southern boundary of Hertfordshire with Greater London, while up to 1965 parts of the district were on either side of the county boundary with Middlesex. The name is encaptured in the council’s coat of arms, which shows a hart upon the battlements of a boundary wall.
The district was granted borough status by Royal Charter in 1977.
The borough was originally in the Metropolitan Police District, despite being outside the modern Gtr. London boundaries. It was not transferred to Herts Constabulary until 2000.
