Hatfield may be more affordable than the likes of Harpenden and St Albans, but its property prices remain out of reach for many. 

The most expensive addresses in AL9 and AL10 are by no means the norm, however, and Hatfield also has plenty of modestly-priced homes. 

Using Land Registry data for the five years to June 2021 – excluding retirement properties and addresses with fewer than three transactions – we can reveal the most inexpensive parts of Hatfield to call home...
