Batchworth Arms

Picture source: Simon Madden

The Batchworth Arms was situated at 58 Church Street. This pub opened in 1866 and closed in 1994. Originally known as The Railway Arms, it was built from three cottages being knocked into one shortly after the opening of the Rickmansworth ( Church St ) station situated opposite. The station closed in 1952 and was taken over by a printing firm and eventually the site was redeveloped for housing thus breaking the connection with the railway and the pub. The pub took on the name of the local area and became the Batchworth Arms or the ' Batch' as it was known colloquially. Demolished in 1994, there is now an office block and car park on the site.
