Memories Of Holly Grove House Little Bushey Lane

A Memory of Bushey Heath

I lived in Holly Grove House for 16 years till 1960 when we sold the house to a developer. A E Mathews used to come to parties at our house, he built four tubs house oppersite where he lived but could not afford to live there. The pub was once the coachman's house for Holly grove that was why it was attached. The house on the left of the photo belonged to Lilly Lemon who looked after me as a young boy. Happy days all round. I also knew the Rogers of the nursery garden at the other side of the Elstree rd at the top of the lane, and still am friends with his grandson.
