History Society Wants your Memories

Old Rex Berkhamsted

Berkhamsted History Society will be celebrating its 75th anniversary next year, and would now like to build for the future a collection of more recent memories from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Society members would love to hear from anyone who has memories of being in Berkhamsted during the past 75 years or longer, or memories of elder relatives who lived in Berkhamsted in the 1900s or before.

Did you work for Coopers in its heyday? Did you spend summers in Berkhamsted open air pool? Can you remember some of the stores we used to have on our high street? Pubs that are no longer pubs, the 1966 pageant…

There are three categories:

  • My first house and garden in Berkhamsted
  • My teenage memories of Berkhamsted
  • My memories of Coopers and Wellcome (a major employer in the C20th)

Get in touch at email memories@BLHMS.onmicrosoft.com or see society members at the Saturday charity stall next to Aichinsons Estate Agents on 3 August.
