The WD postcode area, also known as the Watford postcode area[2], is a group of 13 postal districts around the town of Watford in Hertfordshire, England. The main sorting office is in Watford (Ascot Road WD18) and it is divided into seven post towns.

The WD3 district also covers the north western extremity of London - a small and mostly unpopulated protrusion of Harefield in the London Borough of Hillingdon. It also extends into the Chiltern district of Buckinghamshire to include the village of Chenies.



The approximate coverage of the postal districts:

In September 2000 districts WD17-18 and WD23-25 were created from the recoding of the WD1 and WD2 districts. BUSHEY is a new post town; having previously been part of the WD2 district of WATFORD. This was due to postcode exhaustion of WD1 and WD2 [3]
