  • My father-in-law Alfred Quarman used to help out with the gardening. He was an avid allotment holder and was superintendent of the allotments at the top of Lower Paddock Road and the one in Oxhey Avenue. Perhaps he helped out with the produce side of things.

  • Fantastic pictures, I was never aware that such pictures existed. I remember the exterior of Oxhey Grange as I was a frequent visitor when I was 8 in 1940. The Gardener and his Wife had a flat over the stable, below was a Tack Room with the harness for ‘Rualpha’ ‘Gaydawn’ and ‘Molly’ the horses which were once ridden by Mr Absaloms Children. The stable yard also had kennels which were large, but only occupied by 2 black labradors which the Gardener allowed me to exercise at the weekends and holidays. Mr Absaloms 2 cars,Ford Convertible GPL 402 & Saloon GPL 403 were also kept there. Happy memories.
