Tuesday 30th April 2013
1.30 – 4.30 PM
Law Court Building, University of Hertfordshire, De Havilland Campus
Workshop Leader: Julie Moore
This workshop will introduce a range of materials which capture the history of Smallford station and the lives of the people who lived and worked in the surrounding community. Sources such as local maps, census material, trade directories and newspapers can all contribute to building a more nuanced picture of how Smallford developed in the 19th and 20th centuries, and reveal the part that the railway played in that development.
Room W108 is equipped with computers, and temporary log-ins will be provided to enable those attending to explore a number of resources freely available on the web, as well as catalogues and archives which might prove fruitful in taking the story further.
Julie Moore’s research focuses on Hertfordshire in the 19th and 20th centuries. Her role within the University of Hertfordshire’s Heritage Hub has enabled her to expand this interest and explore the county’s story in company with other local historians who all share her passion for finding out more of Hertfordshire’s past and how that impacts on the present.
Parking will be available in the University’s de Havilland car park. Please report to Reception after parking your car to obtain a permit.
The Law Court Building is the first building that you will see when entering the de Havilland campus from the roundabout on Mosquito Way.
