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.
