My Street 1959 To 1977

A Memory of Borehamwood

I lived in Theobald Street (no 194) from the age of 7 in 1959 until 1977, and my parents lived there further until 1984. I often used to walk from the Village (as we called the town centre) home at the top on the right was a pub called the Crown and next door to that another pub called the Wellington. On the opposite side of the road was a barbers shop called H Battle and next to that a coal yard which was called Ranges this was later taken over by Charringtons. Further down about 100 yards was a dairy and then after that was just houses on both sides for about a mile. After that they thinned out for about another mile and a half and then you were in Radlett.
