Hatfield Regis Local History Society

d n ll am o l n Lo d o ano

Steve Foster entertained a capacity audience at May’s Local History talk in the URC Hall.

The first talk at the society’s new afternoon time slot was entitled “Matching Airfield”.

Steve’s talk covered the construction of the airfield by American engineers in 1943 on what was
previously farmland. He moved on to its hand over to the men and aircraft of the 391st Bombardment
Group of the USAAF who carried out bombing operations throughout 1944, including D-Day, until their
move to France at the end of September. He also gave an insight into the airfield’s use by the RAF as
a base for glider operations in 1945 including Operation Varsity (the crossing of the Rhine).

Steve also spoke of the post-war fate of the airfield as the runways were broken up for the land to be
returned to farming, the remaining buildings that can be seen and explained the rich variety of wildlife
that lives on the site.

Mention was made of the crash of a B-26 bomber from Matching on to houses on the Chelmsford
Road in the village and Steve gave his personal memories of meeting veterans of the 391st BG at a
reunion that was held on the site.

The talk was illustrated by an extensive slideshow of photographs that has been compiled by Mark
Ratcliff as well as books, photos, plans and relics relating to the site.

Talks take a break for the summer with the next one being “Hatfield Heath-Then and Now” given by
Terry Jameson on September 18 at 2pm.

Fewer Aircraft Noise Complaints From Hatfield Heath

It is concerning that Stansted Airport is stating that there are fewer noise complaints from Hatfield
Heath residents this year compared to last year. The number of complainants has stayed roughly the
same in Hatfield Heath. However in Hatfield Broad Oak the number of complainants is almost double
the number here. This is surprising to me as the planes seem to be climbing as they head towards
H.B.O. and the night flights come across our village. I wonder why the Airport has raised this; is it to do
with their recent planning application or to preclude any moves towards compensation for aircraft
noise disturbance?
I am aware that more residents would complain if the procedure was easier but do try. Use the SSE
form via [email protected]

The History of nglish Gardens

How far back in time do you have to go to find the origins of the garden and gardening
This is the uestion posed by Nigel Start in his talk “The History of nglish Gardens” given to the Hatfield
Heath Gardening Club at their April meeting.

veryone has heard of the Garden of Gethsemane of biblical times and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon
which probably existed around 600 BC. vidence of crop cultivation can be found on the sculptures of
ancient gypt dating back to 2000 BC. However the growing of crops is now thought to have started
around 8000 BC when the hunter gatherers gave up the nomadic life and settled and built permanent
dwellings. n this country grain pits to store corn, beans and similar crops have been found beneath
Anglo-Saxon houses dating back to the 5th. Century AD.

erhaps because of the absence of written records other than the occasional depictions in the stone
carvings of ancient gypt and Greece, we have little knowledge of the development of the garden. One
early plan dating fro the 9th. Century is that of the monastery of St. Gall in Swit erland. Some areas of the
plan, particularly around the kitchen and the hospital, show that cultivation is taking place. Many paintings
from the 16th. Century show garden cultivation taking place in ways that are familiar to us today.

n the 1 00s Capability Brown and Humphrey Repton extended their works to either reconfiguring the
landscape in the case of Brown or developing planting schemes within the existing geography in the case
of Repton whose work can still be seen at Hylands House near Chelmsford.

As the number of cultivated spaces grew there came the need for plants to fill them and this resulted in
the emergence of the “plant hunters”. Hooker. Forrest, Banks, Charles Darwin and A Bowles of
Myddelton House travelled the world to bring back fruit, vegetables and flowers to stock both kitchen and
leisure gardens. Sir alter Raleigh famously brought back the potato from his trips to the new world.
Sometimes exotic fruit and vegetables were brought back to stock the newly invented glasshouses and
orangeries. The great houses often had walled gardens growing enough food to cater for the family and
their many servants and the people were allowed space to grow crops for themselves.

n 1804 these enthusiasts got together to form a horticultural society whose aim was “the improvement
of horticulture”. n 1861 ueen Victoria granted them a Royal arrant and they became the Royal
Horticultural Society (RHS) which we know today as the organisers of flower shows at Chelsea, Hampton
Court and Tatton ark. The society also runs active gardens around the country at isley in Surrey,
Rosemoor in Devon, Harlow Carr in orkshire and, close to us, Hyde Hall near Chelmsford. A new garden
is being established, Bridgewater at orsley Old Hall near Salford which will feature a recreated walled
vegetable garden.

The media have also played their part in the modern history of our gardens. xperts such as ercy
Thrower, Geoff Hamilton and Alan Titchmarsh have been able to pass on their knowledge and enthusiasm.
They have in many cases established trends in the si e and design of gardens, the emergence of the
taste for decking being one

On ednesday 23rd. May the club welcomes back Rodney Tibbs to speak on “Gardening Then and Now”
and in June they will be taking a trip to Bressingham Gardens in Norfolk. Meetings are held on the fourth

ednesday of each month and take place in Hatfield Heath Village Hall starting at .45 p.m. Just come
along, everyone is welcome. However, if you would like to know more about the Hatfield Heath Gardening
Club call 012 9 30425.

What a difference a year makes: at this time, last year, we were keeping our fingers crossed
for rain, to green up the new grass in the Walled Garden, and for the successful building of
the treehouse!

At this June’s Open Day the Gardens should be looking beautiful as we celebrate the nature
that we cherish alongside the formal planting. There are many areas where wild flowers
already thrive and we are introducing a new grass cutting regime this year to help the wild
flowers set seed and multiply. This year the snowdrops were gorgeous, as usual, and we
have had more cowslips than previously and banks of bluebells, particularly down at the end
of the Glade.

By June, the viewing platform should give fine views of waterlilies on the fishing lake. We will
have bug hunting for children as well as a nature trail and craft activities. We will be joined by
Uttlesford Beekeepers, the RSPB, plant and craft stalls, including willow-weaving. And local
musician, Keef Jackman, will play his Ukelele blues and other self-penned songs. Of course
no Garden Open Day would be complete without our locally renowned bacon rolls and
homemade cakes.

Heath layers celebrate 50 years
Over 100 guests recently attended a party to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the founding of Hatfield
Heath’s drama group Heath layers’

The party was held in the eter Lines Memorial Hall as the Village Hall was renamed in memory of a
long-standing member of the layers.

The group’s first production in May 1968 was mlyn illiam’s Night Must Fall’ which was directed by a
local actor named Chris Timothy. Chris wrote and directed many of the early pantomimes before
moving from the area and finding fame with the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small’. Chris still
follows the fortunes of the group and took time out of his filming schedule for astenders’ to attend. As
he announced to revellers, nothing would have kept me away’

Also in attendance was Charlotte Schroeder who appeared in the very first production. She cut the
celebratory cake with Chris.

x-members travelled from dinburgh and Cornwall to attend the celebrations. John aine who acted
as the group’s Music Hall chairman for many years introduced a number of performances that ended
with a medley of music hall songs.

The layers’ extensive archives of programmes, photos and newspaper reviews were on display as
well as an impressive array of posters and costumes from over the years.

The layers have produced over 130 productions throughout its history and each show had someone
present at the party.

Members of the public will be able to browse the layers’ archives at the Village Festival on June 24
when the Local History Society will be celebrating the Anniversary on their stand.
