Wonderful Village - a Memory of St Albans.

I am 83 years old, my Grandparents lived in this village most of their lives until my Grandmother death in the 1940's when I was child I spent most of my weekends here my Grandmother lived in a cottage named Davis Cottages there was only two of them but now demolished, these cottage were opposite the Water Splash I can remember going over to use the swimming pool, next door was a café called The Spot the bus stop was outside there and we would get the bus back home to Wood Green where we lived my parents would go for a drink at the Bull and the Green Dragon while my sister and I would play under the arches and have a great time, my Grandmother died in the 1940's and is buried in St Peters cemetery I only go to London colney when my Grandchildren take me there it brings back so many memories
