Post by Georgina Dorsett ( nee Peters ): Thrift Farm

My parents moved to 1 Thrift Farm lane Borehamwood in 1947 from London, the farm was next to their house, it was a dirt track leading to the house. In front of our house was a cornfield we often had pigs come in our front garden and i would walk to the farm to see the animals particularly the sheep. They built a tarmac road when Holmshill school was built, and we no longer had a wonderful view of lovely cornfields was such a shame.

Post by Scott Hatton: 12 Wansford Park, WD6

We moved to 12 Wansford Park during August 1960, moving out during 1967.

My parents had managed to wangle themselves into a house in London W10 which was due to be demolished by the local council. Thus the council moved them into a much better place (inside toilet!) opposite Tempsford Green in Borehamwood.

Post by John Dye: Cool Oak Lane, NW9

I lived at Queensbury Road, Kingsbury during World War II and used to play regularly along the edge of the Welsh Harp. About halfway along Cool Oak Lane on the south side was a pond we used to call Froggy Pond. It was the only place I ever saw a water scorpion, Nepa cinerea.
At the end of the war, all the street air raid shelters were knocked down and the rubble was piled up on the ground south of the Cool Oak Lane bridge, on the Hendon side. I remember that this heap of rubble became infested with rats and I used to watch them from the bridge. I was told that an old house on the south side of Cool Oak Lane (Woodfield House?) was once owned by the wife of Horatio Nelson. I think it later became the nurseries for plants grown for the Hendon parks.

My mother worked at Keystones in the 1940 before she was married.

She later worked at home which a lot of people did. You would often see people walking around Boreham Wood with boxes filled with piecework for the factory.

Radlett

Radlett is a large village located north of London in the county of Hertfordshire between St Albans and Elstree on Watling Street with a population of approximately 8,000. It is located in the council district of Hertsmere.

Radlett lies in the valley of Tykes Water, a stream that runs north from Aldenham Reservoir to the River Colne. Now entirely surrounded by the Metropolitan Green Belt, it is seeing significant ’infill’ development and pressure to relax the Green Belt restrictions.
