Origins of the town’s name remain unclear although it is widely thought to be early evidence of a Roman pottery.
Nowadays it serves the function of a London Commuter Town having been redeveloped in the 1930s and 50s to deal with a population overspill from the capital.
The town centre is home to two main shopping areas located near Darkes Lane and the High Street which offer excellent leisure facilities and a good mix of quintessential British pubs and restaurants to choose from.
Hertsmere Council has responsibility for the area and is currently working on plans to update, expand and improve many areas in and around the town centre.
Despite the town’s proximity to the capital, its most alluring feature nonetheless is its relaxed pace of life.

Both Dame Alice Owen’s School and Mount Grace School are mixed grant-maintained schools with solid reputations and good exam results.
There are also two fee-paying schools locally, including Stormont School, an all-girls preparatory first opened in 1944 and Lochinver house school which is the male equivalent.
Further afield there are high performing state schools in the local area such as Queen Elizabeth’s School in Barnet, and Queenswood School in Hatfield.
The town is also proud of its history in veterinary medicine and is home to many students (mostly third, fourth and fifth-year) students from the Royal Veterinary College, as part of the University of London.
