Finchley Thompson | Watford Architecture - From Georgian to Brutal

Watford Architecture - From Georgian to Brutal

July 12, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

It sure is a scorching hot summer in the UK this year. We've had a few weeks of blue skies with perhaps one or two days with morning cloud. And while many people will be enjoying the heat and rays to top up the tan, for an architectural photographer the empty smooth sky is actually a bit boring.

Anyway on one of those hot blue days I decided to go for a wander round my local town of Watford in Hertfordshire, UK. On the surface Watford is generally an unremarkable town but it has a long history which I won't go into here as there are far more authoritative sources such as the Wikipedia Page on Watford
