The Box Moor Trust Centre is situated just off the A41 on the old London Road in Hemel Hempstead.  The centre is located within easy access of the M1 and M25 motorways.  After more than a decade in the planning, the Trust’s new centre was finally completed in the spring of 2013.  To reflect the style of the previous building, a farm barn, the design is very much that of the local vernacular.  It has relatively few windows, a low brick plinth wall at the base, timber cladding and a clay-tiled pitched roof.  Externally, a section of knapped flint wall demonstrates a traditional building technique.

The modern focus of the building is the two storey glazed atrium that will welcome visitors as they approach from the car park. Inside wherever possible, the green oak frame that is the centre’s skeleton is left exposed and the spaces within the frame are plastered.  On the upper floor the oak roof trusses are visible and show the range of traditional designs.

Although room hire is not a primary function of the charity, facilities are available for hire for a wide range of purposes including conferences and meetings.  Reduced rates are offered to other charities and organisations.  The centre offers a unique facility to the community and we hope to enable many local charities and organisations to benefit from using the community space.  We also welcome bookings from other sectors and hope that in the years to come the centre will become a multi-functional, diverse facility that can be enjoyed by many within the community.
