Thundridge is a village and parish in eastern Hertfordshire, England. It is about two miles away from the town of Ware and about seven miles away from Hertford, the county town of Hertfordshire. The parish includes the hamlets of Cold Christmas and Wareside. In 1952 the parish borders were redrawn, transferring a portion of Standon into Thundridge, and transferring a portion of Thundridge into Ware Rural parish.
