    How interesting,

  • Hi Jim I am really interested in Broxbourne in the time when you were a boy there. Would you recall an Elsie and Arthur Dominy who lived in The Priests House on the High Road and kept goats? I think they had three evacuee children living there during the war years. Any memories really gratefully received.

  • Many thanks for your fascinating comments, here and in other articles. Yes, I’m sure a lot of people would love to hear about your memories (including me). Probably the easiest way would be if you get in touch with HALS, and someone could arrange to chat to you and record your stories. The phone number is 0300 123 4049 – it’s a switchboard, but they’ll put you through to HALS.

  • Hallo, I, Jim Bamber, used to go to this church from
    the school, just nearby up an unmade road, on
    special religous days. I went to this school from
    1939 until 1946, when I passed the 11 plus exam and
    went on to Hertford Grammar School. I lived in
    Broxbourne Woods all this time and was taken to
    this school by Sams buses of Hoddesdon who collected a lot of children who lived in the countryside during the war years. Wormley West End and Beaumont come to mind. We had no gas,
    electric or water living in this cottage, which must have been a struggle for my parents during this time. Can I relate my history to anybody about these times……..
