Comments about this page

Gorselands was for many years later occupied by Mr and Mrs William Blackden and their three daughters. Jean Blackden ran a junior school  there that was originally part of St Georges.

Being close to St. John's Church, Gorselands became a base and rehearsal room for many of the drama productions that the Revd Michael Mayne and others produced in the 1950s.

Jean Blackden afterwards lived in Harpenden for many years and remained a close friend of my mother, Freda Wyborn, until their deaths in 1990/91.
