Bushey Manor School, shown without the later prefab canteen and additional classrooms taking up playground space on both sides of the main building. There looks to be a hut or grandstand on the lower playground (on the RHS of the lower playground) I don't remember that being there in the 60s

I too would like a picture of the Moatfield, more because I'm interested in that area. Sorry can't help

I visited the Colne Valley Water Works with the top class from Little Furze Junior School, South Oxhey, almost 60 years ago, in July 1954!



We are fortunate to have such a varied selection of images from the South West Herts locality and I will be pleased for members of this group to consider joining Watford & District.



John Swain, South Oxhey resident 1953-65, Watford Boys' GS 1954-61 and Bushey Cricket Club 1st XI 1958-65.



PS I'm still looking for an aerial pic showing the Moat Field Recreation Ground, home of Bushey CC from 1927 until 1974. Any ideas?

I'm a 60s child born 1961 and attended both these schools.

Oxhey infants in 1965-6 onto Bushey Manor leaving there in 1971.



Oxhey Infants: The head was Mrs Dyble (spelling?) I was taught by in order - Mrs Brown > Mrs Davies > Mrs Richardson (I think I have the Richardson name correct?)



Bushey Manor School: The head was Mr Ruffet ( a local history buff)

I was taught by Miss Joseph > Mrs Wolfe > Mr Davidson > Mrs Bowles > Mr White.

Built in 1907, taken not long after.

Fantastic Michael, where on earth did you dig that pic up from?, I love it. It's cheered me up no end. Thankyou for posting it. There used to be a Timber Yard next door, 'Brent Timber' (in the 60s & 70s), I'm assuming we're looking at it in earlier form.

I also forgot to ask, where did you get the 1907 date from? I've struggled to find any records on the two schools. In my experience any information tends to be about the modern buildings.

I walked round Bushey manor school just before it was demolished. I was a fool, I took no pics. A great regret, but cameras were not everywhere back then. The lower palyground survives, pretty much as it was, serving as a carpark for the health centre.



Oxhey Infants has gone too.
