Chrishall being so close to several county borders has always caused some confusion with it’s location. Although we are definitely in Essex, our postal address has always been ‘Royston, Herts’. And when postcodes came in, we came under Stevenage with SG postcodes.

However the mail has always got through and mostly to the correct addresses. This rather cheeky card was safely received by Mr Green in December 1906 with just a description of where he lived…

With thanks to A Drury for allowing us to copy this card.
