The Green Dragon was situated at 12-15 High Street, Elstree.

At Nos. 12-15 The High Street stood a long, timber-framed building dating from c1500 and there was an inn there as early as 1656.

No 12 was separated from the others, faced in brick and called The Green Dragon during the 18th century.

By 1939 it had reverted to retail but survived the demolition of Nos. 13 – 15 in the late 1960s.

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.

Post by Scott Hatton: 12 Wansford Park, WD6

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.
