Valley View is a small road off Goffs Lane, behind the main village shops. The entrance to Valley View is next to the Village Memorial Hall.

Within Valley View you will find a block of flats, the doctor’s surgery, the dentists, and the village Library.

The Library was opened in 1968, to replace a smaller, inadequate library that used to be situated in Cuffley Hill. Behind the library you will find the children’s playground and sports field.

  • i got some photos of the playing field to add them if you want moderator,… also you notice the early photos had limited parking .. they made way more parking available for the playing field and before the surgery center… im not sure what was on the land where the parking was

  • The library was taken over by volunteers i 2017 due to the lack of support from Broxbourne Council
