The museum's collection

The school cap belonged to James Green, also part of the Watford Field School football team with Arthur Grimsdell, who went on to play for Watford, Spurs and England.

These items were donated via Watford FC by Mr J Green in Leicester.

Telling the story of Watford past and present, Watford Museum is housed in the former Benskins Brewery Mansion on the Lower High Street.

The museum has extensive displays of local history, including a gallery about the town during the Second World War, and important industries such as printing and brewing. For further information about the museum, visit the website at

The heritage of Watford Football Club is also brought to life at the museum. As well as the two massive "Goal-den Years" exhibitions in 2002 and 2003, which celebrated the achievements of Graham Taylor's teams, the museum has a permanent collection of Watford memorabilia.

The items on display date range from a player's card from the 1890s and photographs from the early twentieth century, right through to the club's two famous trips to Wembley in 1984 and 1999. Also on show are a rare print of a painting by Terry Challis, which was presented to Elton John in 1976, and an Elton John stage costume!
