Excerpt: Rickmansworth is a town which is in the Three Rivers district of Hertfordshire, England, 4¼ miles (7 km) west of Watford. The town has a population of around 15,000 people and lies on the Grand Union Canal and the River Colne, at the northern end of the Colne Valley regional park. Rickmansworth is a small town in a leafy shire suburb with a wide range of leisure activities, amenities and good quality schools. Indeed Rickmansworth is in Top 10 neighbourhoods with the highest quality of life according to Government statistics. Nearby there is a wide and diverse range of leisure activities and amenities for example Cassiobury Park, cycling along one of the most picturesque sections of the Grand Union Canal, the River Chess valley, walks in the Chiltern Hills and Chorleywood Common to name a few. The High Street also hosts a range of restaurants covering almost all areas of cuisine. It began to grow in the 1920s and 1930s as part of the Metro-land area, due to Rickmansworth station on the Metropolitan line of the London Underground. As such, it is largely a commuter town and transport links are excellent with fast trains direct to London taking about 30 minutes either via the Chiltern Turbo to Marylebone or fast Metropolitan line trains to Baker Street. It is contained within the M25 J17-J18 with good transport links to Luton and Heathrow Airports as well as the M1 and M40. Colloquially Rickmansworth is often shortened to "Ricky" as used in the town's annual "Ricky Week" celebrations which occur in May. There is also an annual "Victorian Evening" held in the town centre every November. The town's canal history is remembered every year at the end of Ricky Week with the Rickmansworth Festival,...More:
