Macdonald Valley, New South Wales, Australia.
Example HR

The village of St. Albans is situated on the banks of the Macdonald river branching off the much larger Hawkesbury river about 118 kilometers north west of Sydney, the largest City in Australia, and considering the areas historical links with the early Colony of New South Wales and the close proximity to Sydney the village of St. Albans is relatively unknown.
In fact the valley has been for many years been referred to by the locals as the "Forgotten Valley" as it has been by-passed over time by all the major road and rail routes leading north from Sydney.

More Information

St. Albans, New South Wales, Australia, was named  after the Town of St. Albans in England, north of London. St. Albans, Hertfordshire, in turn, was named after Britain's first Christian martyr, Alban of Verulamium.  Alban was a Roman citizen of Verulamium  -  a town of major repute. Verulamium fell into decay in the 5th century but its ruins provided the materials for the construction of many buildings, including the famed Abbey and Cathedral Church - which contains Alban's shrine. St. Albans evolved around the Abbey Church as a small Saxon settlement. By the 13th century it had sufficient significance to be the venue for the drafting of the Magna Carta.
