Just beyond the outer limits of Greater London, the constituency consists almost exclusively of low-unemployment census output areas, with walks, golf courses and leisure facilities, and (compared to Greater London) a relatively high proportion of the retired and the high-income self-employed. Broxbourne's economy is also supported by good railway links to the City of London.
Boundaries and boundary changes
1983–1997: The Borough of Broxbourne, the District of East Hertfordshire wards of Great Amwell, Little Amwell, and Stanstead, and the District of Welwyn Hatfield ward of Northaw.
Formed as a Borough Constituency primarily from parts of the abolished County Constituency of East Hertfordshire, mainly consisting of the former Urban Districts of Cheshunt and Hoddesdon which had been combined to form the District of Broxbourne under the local government reorganisation of 1974 and also including Stanstead Abbotts and Great Amwell to the north and Northaw (transferred from Welwyn Hatfield) to the west.
The three District of East Hertfordshire wards were transferred to Hertford and Stortford.
