St. Mary's church, Graveley

Graveley is built on what used to be known as the Great North Road.

There are a number of attractive cottages and houses, including the George and Dragon pub which has an 18th-century facade of chequered brick. There is another pub, the Wagon & Horses, and at one time there were four, but two have now closed down. Nearby is the site of a former village, Chesfield – all that remain are the ruined walls of its 14th-century church.

According to statistics by the North Hertfordshire District Council, Graveley has a population of 1,731.[2] The village is still growing, with several new houses added in recent years.
