  • Wow! This became a halls of residence for Hertfordshire university and was my home for the first year of my undergraduate degree. It looked much the same as the picture and brings back great memories.

    Rumors were then that it was haunted…it may have been the spirits associated to student life that perpetuated those rumors 😉. Lol!

  • I stayed here when I was a boy aged 4 or 5 years old. I think the owner or maybe the manager was called Tapscott.

  • So pleased to come across this photo of Mangrove House. I never knew my mother in law Louise White but have tried over the years to find out more about her and her family who lived at Port Vale Hertford. She is shown on the 1911 Census at Mangrove House as a 19 year old domestic servant with Elizabeth Gilbertson as head of the household. I could never find out about the house so very pleased to find this information Thanks Irene Bulmer
