A reminder, through a collection of topics, of people, places and activities in Redditch before it became a New Town and the story of that transition to the New Town.
Despite its designation and development as a “New Town”, Redditch has a long history stretching back nearly a thousand years. Much of that history is industry related and there are many sites and buildings in the town that show evidence, and represent, that history.
In this section we bring you a collection of information, facts and artefacts relating to the old town.
