The Black Swan, South Mimms, Watford, Hertfordshire
South Mimms once had 22 inns! The Black Swan was one of these, then known as “The Prince’s Arms”. It was built around 1500, added to in 1600, and converted again in 1800, when the cottage next door was joined on, over the archway to the courtyard. Later it became the village shop and post office. The lintel to a door onto the courtyard states that we were then licensed “for the sale of tobacco and snuff”. The telephone exchange for the village was sited here and it is said that there were no secrets in South Mimms from the operator of the tiny exchange! Older inhabitants recall coming in from the outlying farms to make their calls. Part of the former shop was included in “Orlando’s Camping Holiday” by Kathleen Hale, who lived in nearby Rabley.
