About St Albans:

St Albans is a city in Hertfordshire, England and the major urban area in the city and district of St Albans. It lies east of Hemel Hempstead and west of Hatfield, about 20 miles north-northwest of central London, 8 miles southwest of Welwyn Garden City and 11 miles south-southeast of Luton. St Albans was the first major town on the old Roman road of Watling Street for travelers heading north, and it became the Roman city of Verulamium. It is a historic market town and is now a dormitory town within the London commuter belt and the Greater London Built-up Area. St Albans has an oceanic climate similar to most of the United Kingdom. St Albans takes its name from the first British saint, Alban. The most elaborate version of his store, Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People, relates that he lived in Verulamium, sometime during the 3rd or 4th century, when Christians were suffering persecution. St Albans city has a rich history. There was an Iron Age settlement known as Verulamium, Verlamion, or Verlamio, near the site of the present city, the center of Tasciovanus’ power and a major center of the Catuvellauni from about 20 BC until shortly after the Roman Invasion of AD 43. The Roman city of Verulamium, the second-largest town in Roman Britain after Londinium, developed from the Celtic settlement and was granted the rank of municipium around AD 50, meaning that its citizens had what were known as “Latin Rights'', a lesser citizenship status that a Colonia possessed. After the Roman withdrawal the town became the center of the territory or region of the Anglo-Saxon Waeclingas tribe. St Albans Abbey and the associated Anglo-Saxon settlement were founded on the hill outside the Roman city where it was believed St Alban was buried. The medieval town grew on the hill to the east of Waeclingacaester where the Benedictine Abbey of St Albans was founded by Ulsinus in 793. There is some evidence that the original site was higher up the hill than the present building, which was begun in 1077. Before the 20th century St Albans was a rural market town, a Christian pilgrimage site, and the first coaching stop of the route to and from London, accounting for its numerous old inns. In 1877, in response to a public petition, Queen Victoria issued the second royal charter, which granted city status to the borough and Cathedral status to the former Abbey Church. Two railway stations serve the city, St Albans City station, which is situated 0.5 miles east of the city center, and St Albans Abbey station, which is situated approximately 0.7 miles south-west of the city station. St Albans City station is served by Thameslink on a frequent and fast rail link to central London. Suburban services stop at all stations on the route, while express services are non-stop to London St Pancras International. Trains run north to Harpenden, Luton, Luton Airport Parkway and on to Bedford. St Albans has many state primary and secondary schools and several independent schools. The law school of the University of Hertfordshire used to be based in Hatfield Road in St Albans until it moved to the university’s De Havilland campus in Hatfield in 2011. Hertfordshire County Council purchased the site. The interior of the former law school building has since been refurbished and now forms part of Alban City School, a state-funded Free School for primary aged children, which started taking reception class children in September 2012. A campus of Oakland College, a further education college, is also located in Smallford in St Albans.
