These photographs, taken March 2017, are of some of the very few remaining street name signs put up in the new town by the Hatfield Development Corporation, c1955 -1960s. (We came to Hatfield in 1966.)

I realised recently how very few are left, so I went out to track some down. I didn’t walk every street (!) but covered most of the roads on either side of the whole length of Bishops Rise, and on either side of Cavendish Way. I think they are a lot more distinctive than the current standard issue and they may well all disappear before too long.

STOP PRESS: Another one just spotted at the start of The Common by the Conservative Association building.
