South West Hertfordshire - Oxhey Was My World
Oxhey Village Environment Group - (OVEG) History Sheet 23
by Michael Hodgetts
As a small boy Oxhey was my world, my home. Watford and this part of the county became my larger environment as I grew up. In the boy scouts I cycled and camped all over Hertfordshire. During the war we made fortnightly visits to St.Albans , changing buses first in Watford. St.Albans was my mother’s home. Crossing the Ver (or was it the Lea?), we were nearly at Grandfather Finch’s. One more change of bus and we were there. Sometimes we went into St.Albans city and down to Verulamium where we saw the newly uncovered Roman Mosaic Pavement.
