The Story of Our Shops

Take a nostalgic trip along Watling Street with Radlett and District Museum’s latest exhibition ‘The Story of Our Shops’, which is now open for visitors.

The museum is exhibiting a pictorial journey to show how the town’s shops have changed over the past hundred years, where visitors could buy anything from a lawnmower to a pheasant.

The exhibition is a part of the museum’s popular timeline documenting the development of Radlett through Roman pottery, artefacts, maps and books.

Councillor Meenal Sachdev, Portfolio Holder for Community, Leisure, Culture and Health, said: “This latest exhibition is an interesting look in to how Radlett’s shops have changed and evolved during the last hundred years. Beautiful images will take visitors on a visual journey back to the thirties.

“If you grew up in Radlett, the exhibition will transport you back to your childhood or the memories you may have heard parents or grandparents reminisce about. I would encourage people – both young and old – to come along to support their local museum.

“The dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers at Radlett and District Museum are always looking for new and interesting ways to explore our town’s history. The volunteers have worked hard to put together a timeline of Radlett’s history.”

The museum is situated in the garden behind the Radlett Village Institute. It is open between 10am and midday on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Admission is free.
