Watford History Tour, Paperback / softback Book

Watford History Tour Paperback / softback

Part of the History Tour series


In this comprehensively illustrated guide, Watford History Tour takes the reader on a nostalgic journey around the old market town, coupled with a useful location map showing the various places of historical interest, highlighting the tremendous changes that have taken place in the town over the last 100 years.

In accompaniment with a fascinating selection of old picture postcards, we are able to admire historical edifices such as the thirteenth-century parish church of St Mary, the old Free School founded by Elizabeth Fuller, the imposing Palace Theatre (one of Watford's best-known buildings), the beautifully preserved, Grade II listed almshouses constructed in 1580 by Francis Russell, the 2nd Duke of Bedford, and much more besides.

With so much to see and discover, this guide will surely provide a memorable glimpse into the Watford of yesteryear to anyone who knows and loves this area.
