(If you view History Picture (27) you will see it correspond with the station exit here.)

Photos provided by Claire Ashmore (daughter of Laurie Seymour, a former parish councillor.  These two pictures are thought to have been taken in 1949

Passengers leaving the station




‘Laurie  (dad) is head down leaving the station, Granddad Lovell ( Bill)  is holding his bike, and Granddad Seymour, also Bill, is the third person.  From the two pictures I think the date on the poster is 26th September 1949. Presumably when Ayot Station was to close.   I know the Wheathampstead station was not close until the 60's as we would go to the Welwyn Stores on the train before Daphne could drive.
Granddad Lovell worked untill he was 76, and would cycle every day from The Slype G.W.  to work in Wheathampstead (where the Girl's school is now)’

at the Park Hotel Wheathampstead during the 1940s

This is a photograph of my father Mr R de Mornay Davies the White haired gentleman, Jeffrey De Haviland and John (cats eyes) Cunnington at the Park Hotel Wheathampstead during the 1940s.  I would love to hear of any feedback, i.e. who else is on the picture?


Regards, Barbara de Mornay Penny.
