As it looks today with the M40 cutting across the valley
It is not known exactly where the Keen family lived but it was not far from The Three Horseshoes pub. The 1891 census reports them as living in this area but by 1901 they had moved to Loudwater,
presumably to be nearer to their work in the paper mills. Peter Keen appears in local newspaper reports about the White House Tunnel disaster of 1902 (see below) and his brother,
James Keen, is remembered on the Loudwater War Memorial.
