'Topsies' sweet shop, a regular stop when on my way to school via 'Jacobs Ladder' anyone remember Buster the dog who would only retrieve a chocolate button from his nose when Hatfield was mentioned.

  • Just found this page, after finding my GGGrandfatehr on the new 1921 census, alas him, his wife and 6 of his 7 children were in Hatfield Poor Law Institution, which I’m now searching for. Never been to this area but my father family were resident in this and surrounding villages for at least 200 years!

  • Just bumped into the site researching my family history. As a Family we moved into Downs Farm House in the mid 1950’s. If you have any photos of the house, I’d love to see them. Thanks
