Introduction to

RADLETT & DISTRICT MUSEUM

 

Welcome to our​​ website, and we very much hope you find it easy to use and very accessible for the information you require.

The Museum Trustees are constituted as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) and registered with the Charity Commission.

Since 2018, when our archives collection was based on the first floor at the Radlett Library, the Museum has been relocated to a brand new portable office, sited in the rear garden of the Radlett Village Institute, 413 Watling Street. Radlett, WD7 7JG.​​ 

The new site has been fitted out as a permanent Museum and is open from Saturday 17th​​ October 2020, initially for 2 hours​​ each day from 10am​​ on Wednesdays and Saturdays​​ 

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.

The process of​​ data logging​​ all our archival material​​ continues, and this will​​ facilitate easier and searchable​​ access to​​ documents, pictures, books, recordings and many other objects relating to Radlett and the local area.​​ We​​ are always looking for volunteers to help us with this area of work, transcriptions​​ and other tasks. lf you have any time to assist please email us at​​ info@radlettmuseum.com​​ or drop us a line via our letterbox.

Donations​​ and fund-raising​​ to enable us to carry out our work are​​ very important and always welcome. Please​​ contacting​​ one of​​ our stewards at the Museum or email your details to the​​ Treasurer, David Mitchell, at​​ treasurer@radlettmuseum.com

This is your Museum and it exists for the acquisition and holding of historical records relating to the Parish of Aldenham,​​ principally​​ 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.
