Hatfield Forest Highlights 01279 466 100

Hello everyone, www.simplylawns.co.uk

Christmas approaches and the excitement is building. At
the Forest we are keeping busy through the winter months
and there is plenty to see and do.

The Healthy Walk group that meet every Thursday are
still going strong and always welcome anyone who would
like to join, they meet at the Main Gate at 9.45am or by
the Café at 10am so come along, keep out and about this
winter and explore parts of the Forest you may never
have been to before.

Saturday December 18th is our annual Christmas Carol 15 YEARS IN TRADE

a very slow growing plant, an average of only 2cm a year,
we want to protect as much as possible and so we ask that
you do not pick our mistletoe during the Christmas sea-
son.

Work continues on the Forest throughout the year and our
wood pasture restoration programme will continue this
winter. It is the wood pasture which is of supreme impor-
tance at Hatfield Forest, as an internationally scarce habitat
today, most of the once large tracts of wood pasture have
either been put into intensive agriculture, developed on or
converted into parkland now and so to find wood pasture
in pristine condition is extremely significant. Every year
we cut-back 1 hectare out of approximately 46 hectares of
hawthorn scrub that is encroaching on ancient wood pas-
ture habitat. An example of this work can be seen next to
London Bridge on the road down to the Lake.

REPORT ON 19th OCT MEETING

On 19 October Society members met at St Mary's Church,
for the annual Hatfield Broad Oak meeting.
The subject of the talk, by Society Secretary John Sly, was
the men of Hatfield Broad Oak who are commemorated
on the plaque in the Church as having given their lives
during the Great War.
The speaker subtitled his talk: Identifying The Men,
because of the difficulty of specifying individuals with
certainty with the amount of information available on a
memorial like this, ie forenames and family names only,
is considerable.
Some of the stories of the servicemen (fourteen soldiers
and one sailor) were particularly intriguing. For example
Herbert Groom, who was not a native of HBO, but who
was employed in the village before he died of wounds in
The London Hospital; and Frederick Henry Norris Lee,
the son of the vicar of HBO at that time, who died of
gangrene after his leg was amputated in France.
John Sly also mentioned that, if invited, he would talk at
a later date about the six men who died in the Great War
and who were born at HBO, but who are not
commemorated on the memorial.

REPORT ON LAST MEETING

Our last talk of the year was given away from home, in fact
at St Giles, Great Hallingbury. Why were we there? Well,
the speaker, Philip Hays, a churchwarden and long-time
head of Sheering school, was talking to us about William
Parker, 10th Lord Morley (c 1481-1556), who lived at
Morley House, the building that was on the site of
Hallingbury Place, during the turmoil of the early Tudor
period (St Giles has six brass Latin inscriptions relating to
the family). In fact the village was originally known as
Hallingbury Morley. William Parker's father was the
standard bearer of Richard III at the battle of Bosworth, but
Parker's background as a Yorkist was overcome by his
being brought up in the household of Lady Margaret
Beaufort, the grandmother of Henry VIII. Parker became
one of Henry's greatest supporters in his anti-Papal
campaign, even though he had to agree to the execution for
treason in 1536 of his son-in-law, George Boleyn, and six
years later, to the same fate for his daughter Jane, Lady
Rochford, for helping Catherine Howard, Henry's fifth
wife, to carry on a love affair with Thomas Culpepper.
Parker was buried 3 December 1556 at St Giles.
