  • Your photo of the Waggoners public house reminded me of the year 1942, I aged 9 years cycled with my mother from Slip lane, Nup end, Old knebworth, to visit my mothers cousin, during this visit I learned of previous visits made by mothers family before the 1914-18 war. This visit being made by horse & cart from Broadly common, Essex, 5 children+, 2 adults, made life difficult for the animal, and when a hill was encountered, the rule was,”everyone out”, this journey took allday, we take so much for granted now that most people have personal transport, these visits would have been regarded as wonderful although very tiring for all concerned, Happy days.
