Hoddesdon: a town of changes

From a Hoddesdon Resident

I have lived in Hoddesdon for many years and have seen many changes to the area, when I moved here the Tower Centre had not been built, I remember the Dinant Link Road opening in the mid 1970s, and the Civic Hall being built in the 1970s and the library moving from Lowewood to its present location in the High Street.

How the town has changed!

  • And thinking about it, the precinct also had Woolworths and a record shop.

  • Hi! I don’t know about the 1990s, but in the 70s-80s there was a Sketchley dry cleaners and a model shop (the model shop, selling Airfix models and Humbrol paint, among other things, used to be in Burford St, and I used to go in there on my way home from Haslewood junior school. At some point they moved into the precinct), and I think there was an Iceland frozen food shop (not quite sure about that).

  • Memory fading but would like to know of the shops IN THE PRECINCT around 1994–1997.
    Any ideas where I can get info.
