Visiting Hemel 1955
My first visit to Hemel Hempstead accurred when I was brought by my Grandmother by bus over the hills from Dunstable.
I was 6 years of age, and can still remember that all the shops were brand new, and it had it’s own dedicated Market Place.
More interesting to me then were the Water Gardens with the swans and ducks.
We also visited a park with an arch in it in the Old Town, it was an interesting day out.
