The village name is Anglo Saxon and means, literally, Ash Ridge, referring to the situation of the village on the ridge of a hill. In the Saxon period this whole area was completely forested, thus the 'ash' part of the village name.
It should not be confused with Ashridge, which is a college and estate (including several commons), about 5 miles north-east, the other side of Berkhamsted.
