A Message From The Website Creators

Jake Gutteridge and Tarant Hobbs


W e l c o m e


Thank you for visiting the Cedars Park website. The intention for this site is to provide an easy way for people to find information about Cedars Park, while highlighting the park's rich history as the former site of Theobalds Palace, a royal residence where significant historical events have taken place - many people (especially non-local visitors) do not realise the importance of this parkland.

Tarant Hobbs and Jake Gutteridge (grandfather and grandson) took over the park website at the turn of 2021/22, creating this new one, following the shutdown of www.cedarspark.org. Relevant pages from our personal site "Jakant Research" (covering Cedars Park and other topics) were swiftly migrated to this address (and expanded), and other topics separated to a personal site.

Jake is the Webmaster of this site and has created most of its pages, while Tarant has contributed heavily to the Great War Centennial Corner page, particularly researching the history of the memorial and tanks in general. Tarant is eager to contribute to other areas of the website where possible. We have jointly tagged the trees and listed the memorials around the park, and both manage the data collected through those projects.

We are passionate about Cedars Park and work to encourage improvements in the care and preservation of the park, and bring attention to any failings in its management, so that it may be continually improved and retain its status as the premier park in the Broxbourne Borough.

This website is in continual development and any comments are appreciated by e-mailing us at cedarspark@mail.com. You are also welcome to submit any information, pages or images to be displayed on the site.

Other subjects are covered at Tarant Hobbs and Jake Gutteridge's personal website, Jakant Research.
