IM Pending Laindon High Street
The Changes to Laindon High Rd
The BBC Hands on History project has started looking at the changes that have taken place in the countrys’ High Streets.
Essex County Council is assisting by setting up Memory walls in its libraries so the members of the public can visit the library and see how their local High Street has changed over the years.
It is also an opportunity to contribute by correcting information and filling in the blanks.
The recently set up Laindon District Community Archive is fully supporting this and will be including information gained on our web site as it is developed. It would be nice to be able in the future to arrange another Memory Wall with all the photographs that exist of the old Laindon High Road with photographs of the present day High Road at that location.
This in the case of Laindon will clearly show the decline of the High Street.
