Welcome to the Abbots Langley Local History Society. Abbots Langley is a village in Hertfordshire, England, situated between Watford and Hemel Hempstead, and close to St Albans. The Society was formed in 1994 and our web site was created in February 2000. These pages give an insight into the functions of the Society and we would be delighted to hear from anyone with an interest in Abbots Langley's history. Please feel free to send an e-mail.
