Our Mission Statement: Hertford Museum aims to collect, preserve and interpret evidence of the history of the county town and surrounding parishes in the district of East Hertfordshire for the interest, enjoyment and understanding of the local community and other visitors.

The City of Butchery Green

13th February – 16th April 2016
Tuesday - Saturday, 10.00 am - 5.00pm

Houses in Green Street, Bircherley Green, before they were demolished in 1905

The shopping centre of Bircherley Green stands on the site of Hertford’s most notorious slum.

As Hertford considers the future of Bircherley Green we look back on the stories of Bircherley Green’s inhabitants from the City Arms public house and the Ragged School to the end of the slum and the arrival of the shops and bus station.
