Abbots Langley is a large village in the English county of Hertfordshire. Abbots Langley is 1½ miles east of Kings Langley. It is situated between Watford and Hemel Hempstead, and close to St Albans. The village was formerly part of the Rural District of Watford, but in the boundary changes of 1974 it was included in the Three Rivers district. Abbots Langley has excellent motorway links, the M25 passes directly through the parish, and the M1 is very close, just to the east side.
