Knebworth Cottage Home (1890)
In 1888 Herbert Edward Jones converted this cottage to allow him to continue his work with impoverished boys from the London Slums. In 1914 Knebworth Home for Boys moved to specially constructed premises in London Road where it continued to 1975 under the name St Alban's Home for Boys.

A small detached part of Letchworth parish, including Burley Farm, was transferred to Knebworth when Letchworth Garden City was created in the early 20th century.
