A brief history:

Croxley Great Barn, although just outside the Parish boundary, is a hidden medieval monastic barn situated in Croxleyhall Woods built with timber felled in around 1397 and probably built by Abbott John Moote of St Albans Abbey between 1397 and 1401.

With its weather boarded bays and aisles, peg hole tiled roof the barn exudes its place in history. It has sometimes been referred to as a tithe barn but these were used to store produce given to the parish priest by parishioners.

The Little Fox Market in Rickmansworth started with a few tables of products in December 2010 and has grown into a vibrant boutique market with over 30 stalls. Every month there are a variety of stalls with fantastic high quality products run by local people. A selection of jewellery and accessories, boutique clothing, cakes, homemade breads and chutney, shabby chic, antique finds, gifts, beauty products and home ware! Some stalls join in every month with favourite buys and new stock; some stalls will vary each month, so there is always something fresh to see.

The stallholders are a huge part of the warm and inviting feeling of the market and there is a real fun community vibe. The Little Fox Market’s aim is to get as many local people involved as possible, whilst keeping high quality, uniqueness and fun the main focus.
