Old Maps of Harpenden

Historic Maps of Harpenden and the local area.

In the mid to late1950s we ten year olds used to "swim" in that pond despite the warnings about polio. The water was green and slimy and not more than a couple of feet deep.It was a man made concrete structure.

I worked in the instrument workshops as a draughtsman in the early 70's. Names I recall are: Brian Edwards, Dave Forder, Ron Turnpenny, Dave Clay and Don Burns.
