Turn back time - Fore Street as it was in the past and how it is today

The changes in Hertford's High Street

By Fiona MacDonald

Fore Street was shown on early maps as ‘Highe Stret’ and is the town’s main thoroughfare, wider than any of the other old streets.

Images from the archives shown alongside photographs taken in 2010 show how it has evolved over time. Some things remain the same while others have changed beyond recognition.

  • My Great aunt worked for Mr Roberts at the Thistleddo as a cleaner. Though I never met her the family stories of how Mr Roberts treated her are all good ones.
