Introduction

Welcome to Radlett & District Museum and to our new website, which we very much hope you find easy to use and very accessible for the information you require.

We are now constituted as a Charitable lncorporated Organisation ( CIO ) and registered with the Charity Commission numberĀ 1175292.

During 2018, our archives collection, based on the first floor at the Radlett Library, will be available to view by contacting one of the trustees whose details can be found either on the website or at the library.

This year we will be commemorating both the inauguration in July 1868 of the Railway Passenger Service from Radlett to London, and the ending of the Great War in November 1918. We also will be displaying our exhibits and presenting exhibitions at both the Radlett Centre and the Harpenden Building Society, as well as various fairs and festivals.

Educating our young people about the rich history around us is one of our aims and we look forward to hosting some visits from our local schools as well as giving talks on areas of local interest.

We have started the process of accession logging of all our archive material, to facilitate easy access to items. We are always looking for volunteers to help us with this area of work and other tasks. lf you have an interest in local history, or IT skills, and any time to assist, please contact us via ‘Contact Us’ in the menu.

Donations and bequests to enable us to carry out our work are always welcome, and should be sent by contacting our Treasurer, Roger Housechild.

This is your Museum and it exists for the acquisition and holding of historical records relating to the Parish of Aldenham which includes Radlett, Letchmore Heath and Aldenham. We look forward to working with you to create a first-class local history museum that will serve us now and for generations to come.
