Wymondley is a civil parish in Hertfordshire, England.

Wymondley forms part of the district of North Hertfordshire. The parish was created on 1 April 1937 as a merger of the two former parishes of Great Wymondley and Little Wymondley. Prior to the creation of North Hertfordshire in 1974, Wymondley was part of Hitchin Rural District.[2]

The principal settlements in the parish are Little Wymondley and the smaller Great Wymondley, as well as the hamlets of Todd's Green and Titmore Green. The population of the civil parish as of the 2011 census is 1,153.[1]

Wymondley was once the location of a dissenting academy for the education of future nonconformist ministers. The academy was active during 1799-1833 and went under various names, including Wymondley College.[3]
