Venue

The venue for the school will be High Leigh Conference Centre, Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire.
The earliest recorded settlement at High Leigh is of a group of farm buildings which are shown on a deed dated 1403. The original parts of the house that is still standing today were built by a Mr Charles Webb, a manufacturer of gold lace who made his fortune during the Crimean war. In 1871, Robert Barclay, of the banking family, bought the estate and gave it the name High Leigh.

High Leigh Conference Centre

Since 1921 it has been owned by conference trusts and has undergone some structural changes.

Bedroom blocks were added during the 1920's, 1950's, 1980's and 1990's, the new dining room was built in the 1970's and the large conference room, Yew Tree Hall almost ten years later. The bedroom blocks are mainly two storeys and are built around a quadrangle.

In the years since the Bible School has been held there has been a number of improvements including a new reception area, an extension and modernising of the Yew Tree Hall and the building of the new 'Cherry Wing.'

Unless conference attendees want to there is no need to go outside to reach any bedroom from the main facilities.

First and Second Floor Plan

There are formal gardens with a small ornamental pool and fountain close to the house with grass and woodland areas beyond. Although relatively close to London the conference centre is in a rural location with many possibilities for walks in the countryside or visits to the Hertfordshire countryside.
