History

Caption for Cheshunt, Grundy Park C1955

Originally one of the largest country houses in the town of Cheshunt, Grundy Park is now home to one of the Borough of Broxbourne's leisure centres. The grounds are still attractive quiet public gardens, but the fine topiary has disappeared. The greenhouses on the right provided particularly fine blossoms throughout the year and were in great demand during civic gatherings.

Cheshunt St. Mary''S Mission

I was born in Barnet but brought up for my first 20 years in Cheshunt. Does anyone remember the St. Mary's Mission which was halfway down Windmill Lane where Roundmoor Drive is now. Long since demolished I would imagine. I was sent there on Sunday afternoons when I was around three years old in about 1948/9. The services were run by Mr. Gowler who preached fire and brimstone to the quavering kids. Miss Lindsell ran the infant section. There was no WC, just a bit of spare land at the back. Certainly not acceptable in this anti-bacterial age, but we survived. I went to Gews Corner School when Mr. Rann was one of the teachers (how scary was he?!) and dear Mr. Oldacre, who knew every child's name, was ...Read full memory

The Old Pond

On a visit back to the area after a long time away living in Australia. I was dismayed that what was the old triangle with the Old Pond pub in the middle and then changed to a roundabout with a fountain, the area was still known as the old pond because another pub opposite Ripleys was named The Old Pond. I now see that this has been changed to R J s or something and is up for lease. So now there seems to be nothing to indicate that the area is the old pond, other that a tiny sign at the top of Windmill lane that reads "20 Old Pond" how does anyone know that the area within 150 metres of the fountain is the Old Pond.

Was The Sweet Shop Foyles, Near Holy Trinity?

I still remember the thrill of walking down the drive from Cheshunt Sec' School on the last day, with the image of it burning on the back of my neck. Refusing to look back I was saying to myself, "I will never have to walk this path again as long as I live". I remember Farriday with yellow fingers, chain smoking. Does anyone have a good memory to share?
