Mangrove Green is a village in Hertfordshire, England, where Kathy grew up. The population is about 100. There are absolutely no mangrove swamps there. However, there is a nice pub!

The background of this page is an old map of the area. For a modern aerial view of the village, click here.

Mangrove Green has been listed as a village since at least 1240 C.E. Two old forms of the name were Manegrave or Mangraveffeld, meaning "thicket [grove] in common use". (Thanks, Mum, for finding this out.) There is still a village green which is common land, you can graze your goats on it if you want to. It is more usual nowadays to see the kids playing on it.

This is the house we lived in, there used to be a fruit orchard on our land.

My Dad grew wonderful roses, the big trees grew cooking apples.
