How Watford High Street looked before Tudor-style shops built

Watford High Street has many different types of architecture, including a Tudor-style row of shops near to the junction of Market Street which have stood for approaching 100 years.

Thanks to Watford Museum and more pictures from their archive, these photos show how it looked before those shops were built.

The museum’s volunteer archivist Christine Orchard said: “Today we have a short stretch of Tudor-style shops in the market place, near Market Street, which were erected in the late 1920s. The image above is a little snapshot of daily life prior to this and shows part of the gap left after a three-storey block and some very old cottages had been demolished in preparation for building.

“The photograph is likely to have been taken on a market day and the view looks from the High Street in the direction of Holy Rood church, which can just be seen beyond the telegraph pole. On the left is the Compasses pub on the corner of Market Street, and the buildings going into the distance behind it are in Market Street.”
