Hatfield – Monday 7th September 2020

After leaving Harpenden we decided to head to Welwyn Garden City for lunch, and on the way we briefly stopped at Hatfield, just to visit the Waterstones.  Hatfield was a village, but when a new town in the area was proposed it was decided that rather than redevelop the village it would be created on the opposite side of the existing railway line – it was completed in the 1950s.  The Waterstones in Hatfield is situated in the Galleria designer which opened in the 1980s.  It has the feel of an airport terminal about it!
