A Patterson Sketch of the River Gade at Water End

Frank Patterson (1871-1952) was a prolific artist who published a large number of pictures  in cycling magazines. This one shows the bridge over the River Gade at Great Gaddesden, just north of Hemel Hempstead.

Gt Gaddesden
In addition to adding the picture I have restructures the Great Gaddesden page so there are now separate pages for St John the Baptist Church, Gaddesden Place and Water End.

I have also created new links to an old page on the population of Great Gaddesden in 1881, which demonstrates how few people moved more that a short distance from where they were born in rural Hertfordshire.
