Bushey is a residential town 2 miles from the centre of Watford in Hertfordshire, with a population of about 24,000 and good transport links with the M1 just to the north and quick access into London. It is also near to the film studios of Borehamwood and Elstree, and so has provided the back-drop for many a film or TV show. Notably the impressive old bildings here have been used as settings in Harry Potter and part of the University of London is used for the BBC’s Grange Hill. This busy town also has a rich history. It was documented in the Domesday Book but there is archaeological evidence that the area was inhabited earlier, during the Stone Age and there are Roman links too. The population in Bushey exploded in the 19th and 20th centuries, due mainly to the boom in industry and the arrival of the railways. The local museum just off the High Street charts this history. Local tales also site such highwaymen as Dick Turpin as operating in the area! Now there are a good selection of pubs and restaurants, with nearby Watford offering nightclubs, cinema, etc and a decent range of accommodation, from Bushey Heath Farm for caravans, camping and bothys to the Ramada Hotel. There is a festival celebrating arts, sport, music and entertainment each July. Bushey Golf and Country Club is very modern with a 9-hole course and driving range. Bushey Hall Golf Club on the other hand is the oldest parkland course in Hertfordshire. It is an 18-hole, par 69 cousrse with a grade II listed clubhouse. The peaceful Aldenham Country Park is 2 miles away aswell – 175 acres of parkland, woodland and open water, incorporating Winnie-the-Pooh’s “100 Acker Wood”!
