TQ1196 : Watford: The Harlequin Centre

taken 10 years ago, near to Watford, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

Watford: The Harlequin Centre
Watford: The Harlequin Centre
This is the main High Street entrance to the covered Harlequin Centre shopping precinct. This now contains most of Watford's town centre chain stores and shops. The dome is a familiar landmark to generations as it was retained from the building that was here previously, Ketts the electrical retailers. The street leading away to the left of the entrance is Queens Road, and the junction with the High Street and the building were generally known as Ketts Corner.

The sculpture is of a hornet after the nickname of Watford FC.

I am given to understand that the corporate logo on the building on the left indicates that this is some kind of eating establishment.
