Family home


By Peter Madsen

Since I have so many treasured memories offering this photograph for posterity of my former family home known as ‘Hallmores’, standing in 1.3acres. It was sited in Broxbourne -Hertfordshire wedged between St.Catharines Road and the Spitalbrook parallel with Osbourne Road. The leasehold property was purchased by my father Percy Madsen circa 1946, later purchased the freehold from the New River Company. In 1962 it was sold to builders for residential redevelopement whilst still retaining the ‘Hallmores’ name today.

Now demolished, a 1953 photo of bungalows in the garden of ‘Hallmores’ as viewed from the top floor.
