Watford Live! Spoken History Project
This project was a collaboration with the Watford Live! community arts festival and was made possible by the Heritage Lottery fund. Trained volunteers interviewed local residents and recorded their memories of life in Watford during the 1940s and 1950s.
How often have you sat with an elderly neighbour or an aunt who talks about the 'good old days' – what life was like in Watford when Cassiobury Park still had its gates, you could drive a car all the way down the High Street and everyone looked out for their neighbours? These memories are too good to lose and that's why we made these recordings.
