A Mystery Farm at Brent Pelham

A FARMYARD SCENE      A tractor coming in after ring rolling autumn wheat, and a three-horse ploughing team returning from the day's work at Brent Pelham, Hertfordshire.
 Eric has discovered this picture of a farm somewhere near Brent Pelham, pictured in The Countryside Companion, by Tom Stephenson, and published by the Odham Press in 1946 (according to the British Library) although the book is not dated. Can anyone identify the actual farm, with its thatched barns?.
