Nelson Cottage, Well End, is a two storey two bay timber framed house dating from c1600. It became a beer house in 1841.

Mops and Brooms, Well End
It was bought by Hertford Brewers McMullen’s in 1912 and was known as the Lord Nelson.

It closed in 1932 and the building reverted back to a dwelling house, McMullen’s building the new Lord Nelson on an adjacent plot of land.

For some time the pub had been affectionately known by locals as The Mops and Brooms. The name supposedly derived from a fight between gypsies, farm labourers and poachers who frequented the pub and who used the travellers wares of mops and
brooms in a mighty punch up.

When McMullen’s decided to officially change the name to The Mops & Brooms the original sign, a portrait of Lord Nelson, was replaced by one depicting the fight. The old sign now hangs over a fireplace in the pub.

No, it?s not the parade of shops you mention, it?s Middle Row which was demolished in 1889 and was situated to the south of the parish church literally in the middle of the High Street!

Post by Lynne Hqapgood: Hutton Grove, N12

I have a question rather than a comment. When was 80 Hutton Grove built? My parents, Eddie and Margaret Hapgood, lived at 80 Hutton Grove from 1934 until sometime during the war,and I would love to know if they moved into a new-build house during the big suburban expansion in the 1930s. Does anyone out there know?! I visited very recently to see the road and the frontage of the house for the first time.

Post by Georgina Dorsett ( nee Peters ): Thrift Farm

My parents moved to 1 Thrift Farm lane Borehamwood in 1947 from London, the farm was next to their house, it was a dirt track leading to the house. In front of our house was a cornfield we often had pigs come in our front garden and i would walk to the farm to see the animals particularly the sheep. They built a tarmac road when Holmshill school was built, and we no longer had a wonderful view of lovely cornfields was such a shame.

We moved to 12 Wansford Park during August 1960, moving out during 1967.

My parents had managed to wangle themselves into a house in London W10 which was due to be demolished by the local council. Thus the council moved them into a much better place (inside toilet!) opposite Tempsford Green in Borehamwood.

My mother worked at Keystones in the 1940 before she was married.

She later worked at home which a lot of people did. You would often see people walking around Boreham Wood with boxes filled with piecework for the factory.
