St Albans Museum Hatfield Road
The St Albans Museum on Hatfield Road closed it’s doors for good after 117 years. In 2015, after being granted permission to move into its new home at St Albans old Town Hall, the old museum location is being redeveloped.
The museum, over its long history has been dedicated to the life and history of St Albans in Hertfordshire. Over the years they have collected original artefacts, that best document how life has been and changed in this city. It originally opened at the of the 19th century, 1898 if my research is to be correct.
St Albans Museum Moved To Town Hall For Redevelopment
The listed building is to be turned into homes and has slowly been being dismantled since earlier this year. So I thought I’d head over and take a closer look before the new building gets started.
Unfortunately my pictures aren’t great. I had bought a new camera but managed to leave home without it. So it was down to what I could get with my phone and I’ve done my best to edit them to bring out more definition.
Re-Visiting St Albans Museum The Next Day
I remembered the right camera today and was eager to get out and try it. Here are some shots, unedited, taken on a Canon 400D SLR and using a regular 18-55mm lens. Obviously being the middle of the day, workers were around so I wasn’t getting in today. These were taken from just outside.
Take a look!
