Well End, Hertfordshire

Well End is a hamlet which lies on the edge of Borehamwood, Hertfordshire. It has a notable pub, the Mops and Brooms, reputedly the site of a battle between travellers and village folk, although another explanation, that it commemorates mop weddings and broomstick weddings which once took place there, has also been advanced. If my memory serves me correctly, "The Mops and Brooms" was once called, "The Lord Nelson". And its beers may have come from the Benskin's brewery in High Street Watford.
