Bushey Pond Is Still There In 2006

A Memory of Bushey

This 1953 view of the pond is instantly recognisable as so little has changed in the 21st century! I lived just down the hill in Oxhey Village between 1981 and 2006 and would regularly walk up to Bushey by this pond. In earlier years I would walk with my young son David and feed bread to the ducks. At one time there was a small duckhouse in the pond and it was so lovely to see families of ducklings. The parish church is behind the pond and there is a narrow path through the steeply sloping churchyard that eventually leads you to Attenborough Fields and a pleasant stroll through the meadows back to Oxhey Village. I have done that so many times with my family and really enjoyed these walks - particularly on a summer evening.
