20 St Eligius Street

History of 20 St Eligius Street

Approximate location. This property is not listed in 1913. At the end of the 19th century there were properties at the southern western side of St Eligius Street that disappeared in the early 20th century, presumably when Cheshunt College was built. So in 1913 we find Martin Radford at the other end of St Eligius Street at no.2.
