I would like to find out more about Wormley West End

Jim Bamber

I would like to find out more about Wormley
West End. I lived there from 1937 until 1947/8, when
the cottage was pulled down and our family was
rehoused at Hertford Heath. The cottage was known
as ‘ The Thatched Cottage, Broxbourne Woods,
Wormley, The cottage was about half a mile up the
fields above Wormley West End proper.

I do remember the Woodman pub and Carters Farm.

  • Hi All, We lived at Southlea, up the lane from The Woodman and past Carter’s farm.This was around 1965. I attended Cheshunt Grammer and worked nights at the pub as a potboy ! Alex Jones was the landlord and he ran the Woodman with his wife Olive and his sister and mother-in-law, aka « mum ». Quite a scene at that pub during the sixties ! I am still in touch with the local kids I grew up eith there. Remember Reg Bonvonni and the old cottages scattered around. What a place to grow up ! Would love to hear from anyone who knows what I’m talking about !
