More about this scene

The Causeway development, carried out between 1955 and 1957, created a parade of shops, flats and dwellings on the site of Causeway House, which was finally demolished in 1957. It was built in 1720, and until 1857 had been owned by Miss Caroline Henty, the niece of the Edwardian boy’s adventure story writer, G A Henty. The first occupiers of the shops when they opened in 1958 were Mr Hall, consulting optician, Davis TV and radio sales, Christy’s gentlemen’s and children’s outfitters, and Mrs S Henderson, ladies’ hairdresser. The timber-faced building in the distance was the local dental practice.

Memories of Abbots Langley, Ovaltine Farm c1960

I remember visiting the Ovaltine Dairy Farm as a child & into my teenage years, my uncle worked on the farm. My uncle & aunt Charlie & Mary Jones & their family lived in the right hand cottage in the photo, until he retired as far as I remember.
