Re: Bengeo Gravel Extraction

I don't want the quarry here any more than anyone else living in the area. On a historical note a lot of Bengeo is built on old gravel workings, started in the 1800's in Port Vale and worked its way up the hill via Parkhurst and Elton Road etc.

Re: Garage doors

We used a firm in Cheshunt for our electric doors, its a number of years ago but they were very good and did an unusual size for us which the likes of Everest etc. could not supply at the time. We have been very pleased with our doors.

Re: Chambers DNA

Not a family member so can't help with DNA but Sir Thomas Chambers was baptised in Hertford in 1814, his family owned property here, he was MP and there is Chambers Street named for him as it was built on his land. They lived at 1 and owned 1 to 7 Port Hill Hertford if its the same family?

Re: Colin Sykes.

Have you tried asking the shopping centre manager if he has a forwarding address or phone number. He is often about down there and has an office just along from where the jewelers was in the old chocolate shop I think.

Re: Molewood road

Never investigated the lean but it could be due to foundations close to the rivers flood plain...............we know they were built at different times along the road so some may have better foundations than others?
