MUCH HADHAM

Evergreen - - Evergreen -

MADAM: “Much More in Much Hadham” ( Spring 2016) was a won­der­ful sur­prise as this was the vil­lage I was evac­u­ated to on 1st Septem­ber 1939. Twelve of us girls and two teach­ers ( from Mill­fields Road School, Clap­ton E15) were bil­leted at The Palace — I think then owned by a Lord and Lady Bed­dling­ton. We were there about seven months and then split up as the ser­vants were all called up. We had two large oak- pan­elled rooms — one for eat­ing in and the other for sleep­ing. I re­mem­ber the big open fire­place in the win­ter ( kept go­ing with bel­lows) and above it was the coat of arms of the Bishop of Lon­don. The vil­lage used to let our par­ents have the vil­lage hall once a month on Sun­day so they could have us with them for the day.
