President: William Gosling, Lord of the Manor
Bob Reed –‘Downton Abbey to Pishiobury’
For a first meeting after the summer break a presentation by Bob Reed proved to be both historical and
humorous. The use and juxtaposition of Downton Abbey inserts to the content of Pishiobury House
produced laughter from the audience. Pishiobury House is a mansion which stands in 250 acres of
Parkland and is set beside a lake and approached by an avenue nearly a mile long. The layout of the
grounds from an 1844 sale plan remained much the same during the rest of the C19, and into
the C20 when the estate was sold into divided ownership. Pishiobury has the remnants of an 18th-
century landscape park, re-designed by Lancelot Brown with features including an oak walk and a
lodge. Areas along the west boundary, flanking the west drive and around the kitchen gardens,
have been the subject of housing development.
Bob described the life style and occupations of the Estate Staff. Gamekeeper Flack who lived in
the lodge at the end of the drive. Images shown of various traps and use of poison as tools of
his trade during that era. Tom Fish, Cowman, who lived in what is now the Straw Hat
Restaurant, circa 17th Century. The estate reared Long Horn for beef and Short Horn for milk. Ted
Chapman, Farmer, working Rowney Farm situated at the end of Chaseways. Harry Sapsford,
Woodman, Rowney Wood, who used a saw pit when providing cut timber. The question was who spent
more time underneath to get covered in sawdust? Not Harry!
Bob also described work carried out in the household using products and provisions grown in
substantial kitchen garden and orchards. Various fruit trees, apples, pears, damsons and a range of
vegetables with Downton Abbey’s Mrs. Patmore offering advice. The presentation contained
dialogue from all of the Downton Abbey cast which was interspersed with individuals and their
roles from the house adding humor to the historical content. He also covered an archeological dig
which took place in 2012 when a bridge was unearthed.
The estate was sold into divided ownership in the early 20th century. From 1941 onwards, the main
building was used as a school moved from Walthamstow of 81 juniors from 11-13. Nowadays, it is
being used as an office building. Parts of the park have been subject to housing development. At the
end of the presentation Bob had brought a series of books to view and also a folder of estate agents
sales and posters. The membership thanked Bob for his presentation and the humor he generated.

WINDOW ON THE PAST
October 1976 Hatfield Heath Village Magazine.
Ralph Dix Headmaster writing in 'Voices from the past.'
“This years drought reminds me of the long period without rain in 1921 (April to October). During that
summer the 13 ponds on the Heath dried up except for a little muddy water in Reynolds Pond and
the pond adjacent to what is now Hunters Meet. I counted the Ponds after the rains came. Most of
them no longer exist when modern drainage was carried out.”
Hatfield Heath was then truly rural. Farming was then the chief industry, with very little modern
machinery. Farm workers wages were 30/- were week (£1.50) less 1s 3p 'Lloyd George' as the state
insurance was called. Large Families were brought up on take home pay of 28s 9p. Cottage rent was
1s 6p, water from the pump or a hole in the ground just a few houses had tap water. There was no
sewerage scheme. I give no details of disposal!
There were two Ford cars (tin tizzies) Mr Buck the new shop keeper owned one and farmer Albert
Hockley the other.
John Clark 1925 -2017
Our Father, John Clark passed away July
25,2017, in Winnipeg ,Manitoba ,Canada.
He was 92 years old. Early in life he lived in
Pooles Cottage with his wife Jean, daughter
Pamela and their son Peter was born there.
He worked for John Hockley, a job he talked
fondly about. He had been a Boy Scout at Brent
Pelham and wrote to Scout Hall in London and
asked to start a troop at Hatfield Heath.

Doorstep Crime usually occurs when residents are called upon in relation to bogus
property repairs or gardening services. The Doorstep callers may suggest that there is some
urgency to work being carried out so that you allow them to enter your property. The callers
charge extortionate prices for poor and unnecessary work.
We want you to be aware of this type of activity to ensure this doesn't happen to you, or anyone
Here are some useful tips to remember:
• If anyone arrives at your door, ask them for identification - you do not have to let them in and
they must leave if you request them to do so.
• If you decide you are interested in the work, take the time to research other companies and
find out about their businesses.
If you fear that this has happened to you, or you need to report this in the future please do not
hesitate to do so. If you feel you are in immediate danger call 999, if the incident has already
occurred please report through 101.
Remember IF YOU ARE UNSURE, DO NOT ANSWER THE DOOR.

NEWS FROM THE GARDENS OF EASTON LODGE
The season has now ended, as it began, with the sun shining and the bees busily out and about. And what a
year it has been!
The colour still in the gardens is testimony to there having been rain as well as sunshine. In the autumn, the
michaelmas daisies have been particularly good, alongside vivid dahlias and the soft pink sedum; while the
brilliant blue monkshood has been as tall and vibrant as we can remember.
The weather has been good enough for us to welcome a record number of visitors on Open Days and
required us to bake a bigger than ever range of cakes! Visitors have loved our new treehouse and seeing the
second half of the walled kitchen garden become established. In wet weather the restored rill has flowed
over its new flint lining.
Badgers, bats and bees have been on display at Open Days, with experts on hand to answer questions. We
have found there are seven bat species in the Gardens. Large numbers of butterflies and dragonflies have
feasted in the Gardens, and we have had regular sightings of hummingbird hawk moths. New information
boards are now in place to tell visitors about the bats, birds and butterflies in the Gardens.
So, a great year and the challenge is on for next season … contact us to get a copy of our calendar for
2018, full of lovely pictures of the Gardens (call 01371 876979 or email [email protected]).

On ploughing, scattering and not looking back
Regular readers of this magazine will know that our lovely local farmer Michael Hockley had great ambitions for
his vicar to win the Straight Furrow Competition at the annual ploughing match. He took it upon himself to train
me up, and although I didn’t win the competition (sorry coach), I enjoyed my lessons very much. Here’s what I
Firstly: driving a tractor is easy. Driving a tractor at low speed in a straight line is not so easy. You really have to
concentrate and keep your eye on the horizon.
Secondly, you must NOT look back! If you turn round to check your handiwork, you will go off course and your
furrow will be wiggly (that’s an agricultural term I just made up).
Thirdly, you have to plough on, quite literally. You proudly finish one furrow, then look around and realise how
much more field there is still to be tackled. It’s endless!
Our lives can be a lot like this at times. No wonder Jesus told so many stories with an agricultural flavour!
We keep our eyes fixed on what is before us, thinking not only of
how we live out God’s message of love in our community but also of
what is to come, after our lives on earth are complete.
We try not to look back, to hark back to ‘the way things were’,
because we can never go back. The furrow is ploughed, whether
we’re happy with it or not.
And sometimes we just have to keep going. The Bishop of Barking,
our local bishop, told me recently of the eleventh commandment:
‘Thou shalt bash on’. Wise words indeed!
My prayer for us all this autumn is that we would keep looking
ahead, not harking back to some imagined ‘golden era’, and that we would have the strength and the courage to
simply keep going and not get discouraged. And that all our lives would produce abundant fruit, whether we get
With my love,Dawn
to see it ourselves or not. Rev’d Dawn Jewson, Vicar
