Category Archives: Oral history website

The website for the HLF funded website Talking New Towns covering the planners, builders and residents in the Hertfordshire new towns.

Talking New Towns

Our oral history collection now has it’s own website, supported by the HLF and in partnership with Welwyn Hatfield Museum Service and Dacorum Heritage Trust. The website is a place to share existing interviews and for you to get in touch if you would like to contribute memories.

You are also welcome to ask questions to the oral history collection like:

What was it like to go dancing at the Mecca?

Or who decided for Stevenage to have the biggest street lamp ever?

We have lots of answers that we can then publish on demand. We will be adding content through the summer so keep checking on the newest stories .
