Cuffley Hill is a road that runs from the village centre of Goffs Oak to nearby Cuffley.

The houses close to the village centre, around the junction to Jones Road, were once known as ‘South View’. In 1932 an estate agent’s hut was build here, which became the village Library, until a larger building was build in Valley View in 1968. After that time, the old library building was used by the local scout group and guide company. It is now demolished and forms part of a private front garden.

  • Regarding the “Modernised Victorian cottages, on the north side of Cuffley Hill. 2000”, I was born in the one with the grey car, in 1947 and stayed there until we moved to Hertford in 1953. They were called Starr Cottages then, and had an outside toilet and tin bath hanging on the scullery wall. Prior to my father installing an Ascot water, the only water was a cold water tap in the scullery, and water for the bath was from pots and pans on the gas stove. Interesting for a family of 5. Happy days !
