Old Maps of Baldock

Historic Maps of Baldock and the local area.

From 1947, my family used to drive between Middlesex and West Suffolk via Baldock. My father used to point out a house on the East side of the High Street that had many animal figures on the street-facing wall. Does anyone remember it and perhaps have a photograph?

I lived in the hostel in the 1960s and liked the area very much. I was a member of the working man's club, the cinema always had up to date films. The town boasted good pubs, there was plenty of work in nearby Letchworth. I had spells in Borg Warner, Emme's Plastic Moulding, Brand's Coatings and more. I heard most of what I mention is now gone.
