Ware, Hertfordshire

The new Spear's Games Archive is at Roughground House, Old Hall Green, Ware, Hertfordshire, SG11 1HB; tel/fax: 01920 823071. By appointment. Groups of up to 15 can be accommodated. Francis Spear, after his retirement and the sale of Spear's Games to Mattel, has converted a building to house this lovely archive/display of some 1500 games, toys and puzzles produced by J.W. Spear & Sons, mostly between 1925 and 1980. This is the only extensive display of this type of material that I know of. Free, but donations, especially of relevant material, will be gratefully accepted.
