Drivers End is a hamlet of nine houses. Nearby is the house where Cromwell's soldiers were garrisoned during a battle, and musket balls are still embedded in the house walls. There is also the biggest thatched building in England just a stone's throw away. Knebworth House is an ancient country seat, two fields away. The two villages of Knebworth and Codicote are close by, with shopping facilities, about 3 miles away, as is the main railway line to London and Cambridge, and beyond. Hitchin and St. Albans are ancient market towns, from Roman to Tudor times.

I worked as a social worker for 40+ years, at basic and advanced level. I retired 27 years ago, following the death of my husband. I am 76 and lead an active life, and enjoy good health. I spend a lot of my time travelling the world. I have also founded and run two horticultural-based Community Interest Companies, helping vulnerable people and the community at large enjoy a better quality of life. Our slogan is: 'Promoting Well-Being through the Power of Plants'. My home and garden are a treasure trove of plants.
