Not to be confused with Kings Langley, Abbots Langley are a Sunday League side who a young Boro’ side met during our early days. As such, there’s not really much we have to say about them. If we ever meet them again, something will have gone drastically wrong.
Abbots Langley: The Facts
Coates Way, Watford, WD25 9NY
Who are Abbots Langley?
You’ll have to bear with us on this one. It’s not often that we find ourselves writing about a Sunday League side. And that’s what we have here; a relic from Boro’s time as a youth side during the late 1970s. So, if we want to talk about the club’s history, we don’t have much to go on. But they are still around and they’re still doing the do in local competitions. Is that enough to satisfy you for now?
How to get to Abbotts Langley – Travel Information – Distance: 20 miles
Head south on the A1(M) from Stevenage and continue until you get through the Hatfield Tunnel; exiting at Junction 3 for the A414 towards St Albans. Get yourself onto the A414 and stick with it all the way until the Park Street Roundabout. Here, the A414 will go off on the old M10 towards Hemel Hempstead and this isn’t what you want. Instead, take the second exit and follow the A405 towards the M25.
At the junction with the M25, observe whether the traffic is moving in either direction before continuing on down the A405 towards Watford itself. You’ll also pass through the interchange with the M1. It’s about one-and-a-half miles from the M25 roundabout to Coates Way, where you’ll need to take a left turn. This bends around to the right, after which a left turn will take you onto Coates Dell. This is one way to access the park.

Honestly, there’s too much hassle with this rail trip. You have to go into London and change trains a million times to get near. If you do somehow make it to Garston station, however, it’s just slightly more than half a mile on foot. Come out of the station and head north on Whitwell Road, which runs behind the platform. At the end, take a left onto Garston Lane and cross the railway.
Shortly after, take a right turn into Codicote Drive and right again onto Gaddesden Crescent. Between nos. 64 and 66 will be a path into the park. Then just aim for the goalposts.
