This memory was donated to the Welwyn Garden Heritage Trust via it’s Where Do You Think You Live? project by Gordon S. The extracts below are taken from a interview in November 2010 as is the audio clip.
Gordon was born at home in Knella Road in 1929. His parents moved to WGC in 1926 and his father worked on the railway. “…a number of railway families came to the town then because they had privileged fares so commuting was very cheap and… council homes were readily available.”
