for doors that stand out


It is your home so why not let your door say something about yourself? 2


Create an entrance that really welcomes Let your entrance door say something about you - let it show the colours that you like and the designs that suit you while at the same time have confidence that your door will help create a warm and secure home without the hassle of time-consuming maintenance. In the same way that we feel that your front door can tell a story about you, we have chosen names for our styles of doors that also have a story to tell. Each is the name of a town or village that is located within 15 miles of Buntingford - the Hertfordshire town where we make the doors. You can discover the Hertfordshire village that began in a field of clover or the one that was home to a 23 foot giant! We hope this will help you to create your individual story and choose your favourite door. The Welglaze range is an outstanding collection of solid laminate timber composite doors that combine classic or modern styling with high security locking, providing you with a stunning, high quality and secure entrance to your home. Timber is a strong, natural material and a good insulator making it the perfect choice as the core of the Welglaze composite door. This core is completely encapsulated within highly durable plastic edge banding and two thermo plastic door skins so you will never have to worry about painting or varnishing your door. These exclusive doors are available in a wide range of styles and colours. The various low threshold options, in PVC-U or aluminium, allow comfortable solutions for wheel-chair and push-chair access. A comprehensive range of matching side-panel frames is also available allowing the Welglaze composite door to be part of a larger entrance or porch.

Although we mainly show front doors, we have not forgotten about the back of the house - all our door styles can be manufactured as a stable door, bringing your garden into the kitchen at the same time as preventing small children or animals from wandering outside on their own!

Barley village acquired its name in Saxon times, not from the crop widely grown in the area, but corrupted over the years from Beora's Ley, describing a Saxon Lord's clearing in woodland.

Folklore claims that there is a mile-long cave which runs from the west to Cave Gate. Locals say that the passage, rediscovered in 1904, is inhabited by a dragon. Although the cave is now grassed over it is possible that it was an entrance to a prehistoric flint mine. The last person to have ventured into the passage was a local fiddler called Blind George who accepted a wager to explore it. He set off with his dog when suddenly the sound of his fiddle stopped, followed by a scream and then silence. His dog emerged without a tail and his coat singed off. Blind George was never seen again. The Public House in Anstey has been renamed as The Blind Fiddler in memory of George.

The above glass designs apply to the Meesden door - the Clavering door is available only with obscure glass designs as shown on page 13.

There is much confusion about the derivation of the village name of Clavering. However, it is thought that the name means 'place where clover grows' as the Saxons started the settlement in this place where they found plenty of clover.

Meesden The village of Meesden has moved over the centuries from its original position beside the church. St Mary’s church with its twelfth-century nave and mosaic tile pavement is hidden in a wood.

Piers Shonks was a twenty-three-foot-tall giant who lived on an island in Shonks' Moat, Peppsall Field, Brent, Pelham. One day, whilst out hunting, he encountered a ferocious dragon and with an arrow killed it. This beast was in fact the devil's favourite and in outrage the evil one swore that he would have Piers' soul whether the giant was buried inside or outside the church. When Piers was finally on his deathbed, he fired an arrow to determine where he would be buried. The arrow sailed through a window into the church of St Mary the Virgin at Brent Pelham and embedded itself in the wall. Thus Piers was buried in the wall of the church and cheated the devil as he was neither inside nor outside the church. Piers' tomb remains to this day. 8

The Clunch Pit is an environmental treasure in the heart of the village of Orwell. It is an old quarry site of about four acres which was designated by English Nature in 1985 as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) in recognition of its valuable chalk grassland flora and fauna, which are rare in this part of the country.

Orwell Sandon is a scattered village with cottages and farmhouses set around a large area of common land. The foundations of England’s earliest known windmill (fourteenth-century) were found nearby.

Cottage Style Cromer is home to Hertfordshire's last surviving seventeenthcentury mill. Now fixed in one position, the sails used to run on a rail and would rotate out over the road.

Matthew Wall was a farmer who lived in Braughing in the sixteenth-century. At his funeral his coffin was dropped on the way to the church yard. The jolt awoke him and he lived for several more years. In his will he asked that the church bells be rung on October 2nd, the anniversary of his escape. This requer is still carried out each year. Braughing is also famous for its local sausages.

Cromer

Braughing

The parish of Hormead consists of Great Hormead, Little Hormead and Hare Street. St Mary the Virgin, at Little Hormead, is a small Saxon church containing an important ironwork door that dates from the twelfthcentury. Hormead

Barkway

Barkway is a large village which has an elegant high street lined with attractive buildings, which reflect the prosperity during the seventeenth and eighteenthcentury coaching age. The church of St Mary Magdalene has unusual stone figures, and the tomb of Admiral Sir John Jennings, who helped capture Gibraltar in 1704. 11


Hunsdon, Meldreth, Foxton and Walkern

Foxton is a small village in South Cambridgeshire which has a number of perfectly preserved fifteenth and sixteenth-century houses, and a thirteenth century church dedicated to St Lawrence. Meldreth

Foxton

Walkern was the home of the last person in England to be sentenced to death for witchcraft. Jane Wenham was condemned by a Hertford court in 1711 but was given a reprieve from the death sentence and later granted a Royal pardon by Queen Anne.

Hunsdon In the heart of the village of Hunsdon stands an eighteenth-century village hall and an early nineteenth-century pump.

The village stocks in Meldreth are at the base of a magnificent horse chestnut tree next to the whipping post. They are located on a triangular area known as Marvell's Green, which is at the junction of three roads, the High Street, Fenny Lane and North End. 12

Walkern


Contemporary Designs

Archaeological finds have led to speculation that Queen Boadicea used to camp in the area around Brickendon.

Elmdon

Sawbridgeworth

Elmdon means ‘hill of elms’ and this village is home to the only 3 elm trees in Essex.

At the time of the Norman Conquest, Sawbridgeworth was one of the most valuable estates in the country. Owned by Asgar the Staller, who was in charge of King Harold’s stables. Sawbridgeworth was home to one of the oldest nurseries in the country, first established in 1725 where many new fruit varieties were raised, including 30 kinds of plum.

Stortford The Market town of Bishop’s Stortford has many old buildings including sixteenth and seventeenth-century inns. The George Hotel is said to date from the fourteenth-century. William the Conqueror built Waytemore Castle but all that remains today is a massive castle mound.

Brickendon

Stapleford is one of East Hertfordshire’s newer villages, consisting mainly of houses built after the first World War for returning soldiers.

Thorley

Wyddial

Layston The medieval village of Layston is home to the ruined church of St Bartholomew. Although the church was abandoned, it is said that bells continued to be heard. One night when the villagers went to investigate, they found the church empty but lit.

The three times Lord Mayor of London, Dick Whittington, was Lord of the manor of Thorley. Thorley has archaeological finds dating back 3000 years.

Wyddial is situated 500 ft above sealevel and is one of the smallest villages in Hertfordshire. The only public building is its medieval church.

Stapleford

Datchworth has a museum housed in an old village blacksmith’s shop on the green. Rectory Lane runs from the green towards the churchyard and is reputed to be haunted by a horseless cart.

Ardeley

Bramfield

Albury Folklore says that Albury hasx been touched by the devil’s hand. In 1880 one of the church bells fell to the foot of the tower but before it could be repaired or replaced, it disappeared. Some say that it was stolen by the Devil.

Ardeley has an attractive green with a well surrounded by thatched cottages, a thatched village hall and the Norman church of St Lawrence.

Bramfield was the first parish for martyr Thomas Becket. It was also home to a witch and provided a hiding place for Dick Turpin.

Datchworth

Contemporary Designs

Aston Aston has traditional village housing including a thatched seventeenth-century cottage and a jocobean house at Aston Bury, which used to be a monastery until Henry VIII intervened. The village can boast of having a highwayman. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Colonel Jack Whitney waylaid farmers on their way back from Hertford market.

Ware

Watton

Ware once had a prosperous brewing industry and was an important caoching stop. The 10ft 10in long great bed of Ware could sleep a dozen at any one time and has been on display in the Victoria & Albert Museum since 1931. 16

The full name of this village is Watton-atStone. The ‘Stone’ of Watton-at-Stone is presumed to refer to a prehistoric or Roman mark stone of Hertfordshire puddingstone, which can be found at the right of the door of the Waggon and Horses.

In harmony with the environment Welglaze is strongly dedicated to good environmental practice. We believe that taking action on waste is essential since natural resources are being consumed at an unsustainable rate and climate change is being contributed to unnecessarily. We minimise our waste and run an extensive recycling programme that is continually looking for improvement. Wood is a natural resource and the timbers used in our doors are harvested from carefully managed fast-growing forests. 57% of the basic PVC molecule used in the manufacture of our door frames is derived from salt, an element in plentiful supply with an estimated 50 quadrillion (one thousand million million) tonnes of dissolved salt in the world’s seas alone, with the remainder of the molecule derives from oil. The PVCU used in our door frames is 100% recyclable and may be recycled 10 times and more without significant loss of integrity and structure. Aluminium and steel reinforcing sections are also recycled. Our commitment to helping the environment does not begin and end with what happens at our premises. Welglaze actively seeks suppliers with a similar responsible attitude towards the environment and actively encourages our customers to do the same. We also optimise our delivery routes to minimise our carbon footprint and the pollution on the roads. Our high performance PVC-U doors can deliver significant energy savings and as such they can play a positive role in making homes more sustainable by cutting carbon emissions, not to mention heating bills. We believe that the future of our planet is important not only for ourselves but for future generations.

Please note that due to our policy of continuous development, we reserve the right to change specifications without notice. Whilst every effort has been made to represent colours and products accurately, we cannot guarantee an exact match to our finished product due to the limitations of the printing process. 23
