Hatfield in Hertfordshire started life as a Saxon town, the nucleus of the old town being Hatfield House, home to the Marquis of Salisbury. The newer parts of the town were mainly built after the last world war, as were many new towns around London. In 1930 an aeroplane factory was opened in Hatfield, which eventually employed over 4,000 people. This was closed in 1993, and the land was redeveloped for housing.
When the new town was being built in the 1940’s, it was envisaged that it would have a population of about 25,000, but this has been exceeded and is now over 27,000. Along with housing, developers built shopping centres, redesigned the infrastructure of the roads, and created things like libraries and cinemas so there is plenty to do in Hatfield. As well as there being schools for all school-aged children in Hatfield, it is also home to the University of Hertfordshire.
