Goffs Oak


GOFFS OAK

 

Goffs Oak is a large village in the borough of Broxbourne in Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom. It is a jewel in London's Green Belt, with unspoilt grazing land.

 

Schools include Goffs Oak primary and nursery  (rated GOOD) by Ofsted and Goffs Academy which has alumni regularly making it into prestigious universities like the Oxbridge group.

 

The village centre is marked by a WW2 war memorial and full of local history. But that isn't a reason to think the area isn't being regenerated by new developments. Key investments in the area include plans for the site of Rosedale Park a piece of strategic green infrastructure that will host 360 homes, a retirement village and a retail unit. Developments like these are making the most of the scenery and location, attracting new residents eager for a more green lifestyle.

 

For fans of the Spice Girls, it may be interesting to know that Victoria Beckham was raised in the village.
