Wareside is a small village and civil parish in the East Hertfordshire District, in the county of Hertfordshire. The population of the civil parish as of the 2011 census is 735.[1] It is approximately 3 miles away from the town of Ware (from where it probably took its name) and the larger town of Hertford, the county town of Hertfordshire. Nearby villages include Widford, Hunsdon, Babbs Green and Bakers End. Nearby hamlets include Cold Christmas and Helham Green. The B1004 linking Ware to Bishop's Stortford goes through the village and the main A10 road can be picked up at Thundridge. Fanhams Hall Road also links Wareside back to Ware. Ware railway station on the Hertford East Branch Line is located two and a half miles away.

Holy Trinity Church, built in the Lombardic[2] style in 1841 by Thomas Smith has been a Grade II listed building since 1967.[3]

The village has a school: Wareside Church of England Primary School; two locally well-known pubs: The Chequers Inn and The White Horse; and is renowned within the area for its legendary "Wareside Treaclemine".[4] Coordinates: 51°49′19″N 0°01′21″E / 51.82194°N 0.02250°E / 51.82194; 0.02250
