Local Digital Marketers with Local Knowledge: Our Short History of Watford
The town’s earliest name – ‘Watforda’ – was first mentioned in an Anglo-Saxon charter in 1007 but it’s not listed in the Domesday Book since the area was part of the Abbey of St Albans. There have been a few Celtic and Roman finds in the area including flint tools from the Stone Age, a Bronze Age hoard and Anglo-Saxon coins from the 10th century but there’s very little evidence of prehistoric occupation until much later.
Strategically placed, Watford stands where there would have been a crossing of the River Colne, allowing travellers to travel from northwest to southeast and even today Watford High Street follows this course. The town was built up on the dry ground beside the marshy edges of the river and it’s possible that the name may have stemmed from either ‘waet’ (marshy area) or ‘wath’ (hunting) and ‘ford’.
It wasn’t until the 12th century that a settlement developed. A market was granted to the Abbot of St Albans (where it flourished well into the 20th century) and he also arranged for the building of the first church, St Mary’s, next to the market. Sadly, the church is all that remains from the medieval period.
The oldest domestic buildings to have survived are the Bedford Almshouses from around 1580 and others, including Monmouth House from the 17th century and the Free School, Frogmore House, Benskin House, Little Cassiobury and Russells from the 18th.
It wasn’t until the early years of the 19th century that the town really started to flourish. The opening of the Grand Union Canal allowed goods to flow into the town and when the railway arrived in 1837, it encouraged new industry and a rapidly growing population.
In the later years of the 19th century, train links into London allowed commuters to move out to Hertfordshire. Residential streets were quickly developed and Watford grew into a thriving town.
Into the 20th century and between the wars, the railway was the biggest local employer and after the war, Watford became well-known as a centre for the printing industry but with many British towns, the decline of industry has led to the service industries being the town’s main employer.
Today, Watford remains a thriving commuter town with excellent road and rail links all over the country, great schools, a huge out-of-town shopping centre and lots of bars, restaurants, shops and leisure activities.
Dominating the town is Watford Football Club. The Premier League side who play at Vicarage Road was founded in 1881 (as Watford Rovers) and The Hornets are enjoying a resurgence under Spanish manager Javi Gracia and Italian owner Gino Pozzo. Legendary musician Sir Elton John is the club’s Honorary Life President.
