Hartham Common is a park in the county of Hertfordshire in the East of England. It is located between the town centre of the county town of Hertford and the elevated suburb of Bengeo.

Location[edit]

The park is situated in the valley of the River Lea and the River Beane, where the rivers' confluence is, at the eastern edge of the main field. The River Rib enters further east of the main field.
