Bedmond is a village in the Three Rivers district of Hertfordshire, England. It is located around one mile north of Abbots Langley.

Bedmond is the birthplace of Nicholas Breakspear, the only Englishman to ever be Pope. Nicholas Breakspear was born at Bedmond Farm around 1100 AD,[1] and the site where his home stood is marked by a plaque.[2]
