A PLAQUE charting the history behind a new development of flats in St Albans has been unveiled.

The development - known as The Grange - stands on the site of the former Mile House pub in London Road which was first mentioned on a map in 1766.

It was originally a coaching inn for travellers passing through St Albans. Some years ago there were protests when the name was changed to "grillbar" and then, after a long planning battle, the building was demolished and 20 flats built on the site.

The plaque was unveiled by Bob Weston, chairman of Weston Homes, watched by St Albans district councillors Robert Donald and Geoff Harrison together with Mike Higham, of the Mile House Residents' Association.

Mr Higham said: "I think Weston Homes can be proud of what they have created here. The development certainly echoes the original Mile House building and is architecturally in keeping and sympathetic with the surrounding area.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
