Rediscovering Redbridge

Over the past six months, we have recorded peoples’ memories of living and working in Redbridge over the last 70 years. Many peoples’ memories involve Redbridge during wartime, rationing, how shopping and transport have changed over the years, and how Redbridge as a whole has changed.

Audio clips for the Rediscovering Redbridge project can be heard by clicking here.
