Brocket Hall

By Meadow Green Resident

This shot is taken from the bridge over the river Lea in Brocket Park, from the right of way which leads southwards to Lemsford Mill and south westward up the hill to the Crooked Chimney public house. It is interesting to find so many Welwyn Garden City resident who have never walked the rights of way across Brocket Park.

  • I was born at Brocket Hall and lived the first 21 years of my life, firstly in the Nissan huts and then moved to a brand new house in Wheatley Road where my parents lived until they both died. I went to Thumswood Infants, Blackthorn Primary, Attimore Hall S.M and WGC High School. I trained as a teacher and now retired live in Mitcham Surrey.

  • I was interested to see the comment about the Brocket Babies reunion. I too was born there in April 1949 and my Father told me about visiting when the daffodils in the grounds were in flower and how lovely it looked. I think for my Mum it was not such a good experience as she had to be away from home for for a while and missed my older brother. I have never had the opportunity to visit the Hall, and would be glad to know if there is another reunion. Pat Frith 25/1/12

  • I was very pleased to see the picture of the bridge at Brocket Hall. I was born at the hall in 1944 and returned there in 2010 for a Brocket Babies reunion.
