About Watford

Watford is a town located in Hertfordshire, England, located 17 miles  to the northwest of central London .

The town developed on the River Colne on land that belonged until the 16th century to St Albans Abbey . During the 12th century a charter was granted allowing a market and building St Mary's Church began. The town grew modestly.
