St Albans House Prices & Redeveloment
Due to its close proximity to London, property prices continue to rise in St Albans and, according to the Rightmove property price index, the current level of annual house price inflation stands at 5%. However, given the recent apparent cooling of the property market in London, the rate of house price inflation in St Albans is likely to follow suit in the near future.
Similarly, there has been a distinct falling away of demand for property in the area over the past couple of months. There are several factors that may be causing this. It may be due to the recently introduced tougher mortgage restrictions, it could be a reaction to the increasingly pessimistic forecasts from several analysts, it could signal growing fears of a housing bubble burst, or it could simply be a symptom of the fact that people are less likely to want to buy houses during the summer months.
Whatever the reason, the increasing supply of housing stock entering the market, which has developed hand in hand with the drop in demand, seems to signify an impending realignment of the housing market in St Albans.
The long awaited London Road Project, which will see the demolition of the old Eversheds site and the construction of 80 new homes and a four star hotel with conference facilities, is due to get underway soon. Further regeneration and redevelopment plans include a new retail and mixed use development in St Albans city centre, the introduction of retail warehousing at Griffiths Way and new leisure centres at Westminster Lodge.
St Albans Culture & Attractions
Owing to its rich history, St Albans is a popular tourist destination, with notable landmarks including St Albans Cathedral, the palaces of the Bishops of St Albans and Hertford, the Kingsbury Watermill, now a museum, Holywell Hill, down which, according to apocryphal legend, St Alban’s head rolled following his execution, one of the oldest pubs in Britain, The Fighting Cock, the Clock Tower, which is the only extant mediaeval town belfry in England, and several old inns and public houses, which serve as a reminder of the fact that St Albans was the first coaching stop on the route to and from London.
St Albans Tradition & History
St Albans is located on the site of the old Roman town of Verulamium, which was the first major town located on Watling Street, the Roman road along which travellers headed north from London. In turn, Verulamium is the Latin version of Verlamion, the name of the Catuvellauni settlement, a mile or so to the west of the site. Laying in the valley of the River Ver, Verulamium was the second biggest settlement in Roman times. After the Roman withdrawal in the early 5th century, the Mercian Angles who took control of the town called it Verlamchester or Wæclingacaester.
St Albans modern name derives from the first British Christian saint, who is believed to have been martyred by beheading on the site where St Albans Cathedral now stands in the 3rd or 4th century CE.
The Mediaeval township grew up around the site of the Benedectine foundation of St Albans Abbey, which was later to become St Albans Cathedral. The Abbey rose to such a level of prominence that it was considered by many to be the principal abbey in the entire country. The fact that the original draft of Magna Carta was written within the Abbey’s hallowed walls, serves as evidence of its significance at the time.
During Henry VIII’s ecclesiastical Reformation, the people of St Albans purchased the Abbey and used it as their parish church from 1553 onward. It became St Albans Cathedral when St Albans was granted city status in 1877. St Albans also lends it name to two battles which occurred in 1455 and 1461 respectively, during the Wars of the Roses.
Having previously developed slowly, continuing its existence as a traditional market town up to the early 20th century, St Albans developed a large electronics industry in the inter-war years. The city’s population grew exponentially thanks to its inclusion in plans to deal with overspill of London’s population following World War II, the same scheme which saw the construction of New Towns like Milton Keynes. St Albans is now a dormitory city due to its location within the London commuter belt.
