Apart from its green spaces, Tattenhoe is also known for its historical significance, as the village itself has been around for centuries. Visitors can expect an exhilarating and rejuvenating experience when they explore the sites present at Tattenhoe.


The name Tattenhoe comes from an Old English term that translates to “Tatta’s spur of the land”. The village was first recorded in the 12th century as Thateo. Over time, the village’s name went through significant alterations like Tattenho, Totenho (13th century), Tottynho (16th – 17th century), and Tattenhall (18th – 19th century).

During the 16th century, the village was abandoned. At this time, the village had its own moated manor house and church that are estimated to have been built around 1540 or perhaps as early as the 12th century. When people decided to redevelop Tattenhoe, it only consisted of St. Giles’ Church and three farms. Despite this, the Tattenhoe was still recognized as a village instead of a hamlet because it had its own ecclessianstical parish.

The Haredim community of Stamford Hill eyed Tattenhoe Park as a possible site for a new settlement in 2006 but eventually decided against it.
