Up & Down The Street Project

Front Street Looking South

In 2007 the group were successful in bidding for Heritage Lottery Funding to help finance this project.

The projects aim was to build a historical record of shops, homes, business and public houses that over the years have resided on Front Street. An exhibition was held in 2007 to display the extensive information that had been recorded.

In early 2019 we decided to update our research and carry out a further project to record what had changed since 2007. However the Covid19 Pandemic soon put pay to that. But we still have a large archive of material relating to the Front Street area of the town. If you are interested in a particular premises on the Front Street then please Contact Us and we will gladly see what we have, or alternatively call in to our regular Tuesday Drop-In Session.
