History of Watford
Watford is a town and borough in Hertfordshire, 15 miles north-west of central London. Watford is located on the River Colne. Prehistoric occupation can be evidenced around the area, with a few Celtic and Roman finds. However, there was no settlement until much later.
The town was originally based on the first dry ground above the marshy edges of the River Colne. The river was crossed on an ancient trackway, from the south-east to the north-west. Watford's High Street follows the line of part of this route. The name Watford is thought to have derived from the Old English for waet, which means full of water, as the area was marshy; or wath: hunting, and ford.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Watford
At Cassiobury Park, I had a good game of tennis on a grass court, with my friend. Afterwards, we enjoyed a nice lunch at the old tea pavilion, then a pleasant walk along the river. We saw some lovely woodland.
