Breachwood Green, Hertfordshire :: TL1421
Breachwood Green lies 1 mile south-west of the old village, and its population is 614. Breachwood Green was serenaded by a Hitchin comedian, Paul B. Edwards, in a song making fun of the quiet village. The village has one pub, The Red Lion which is owned by Green King. The village has the only school (Breachwood Green JMI) in the parish which was built in 1859.[6] During the 1970s there was a separate Post Office and Village Stores located in different parts of the village. The Post Office was originally located in Chapel Road next to the Red Lion this moved a few hundred yards along the road to north near St Mary's rise, it then moved again in the mid-1970s to the village store on retirement of the village postmistress. The Village Store closed during the 1990s and has become part of a neighbouring car showroom which was formerly the village petrol station. To the north of the village is a partially restored windmill (without sails). Breachwood Green owes it existence to the farming community as the village was originally a collection of farms, Wheelwrights, Blackmiths and substantial stables. The village also has a large gothic Chapel.
