Watford is a town and borough in Hertfordshire, situated 17 miles (27 km) northwest of central London and inside the circumference of the M25 motorway. It is not to be confused with Watford, Northamptonshire which is 55 miles to the north. The town developed along a road running uphill from a ford of the River Colne. The land belonged to St Albans Abbey until the 16th century. In the 12th century the Abbey was granted a charter allowing it to hold a market here, and the building of St Mary’s Church began. The town grew modestly, assisted by travellers passing through to Berkhamsted Castle and the royal palace at Kings Langley. Being close to the M25 motorway and London, Watford is now a thriving place to live.


Tapco HomeDry’s offices are also close to the M25, in Esher and Thames Ditton, Surrey, which is just a few junctions South.
