Life on Dead Street

Hitchin's Victorian Families

With this new exhibition experience what it was like to live in the poorest part of Hitchin during the 1800's. 

See, hear and smell the terrible conditions families lived in on Dead Street, Hitchin. Hear from the pupils themselves how the Hitchin British School provided a life changing opportunity to escape the cycle of Victorian poverty.

Designed in partnership with students from the University of Hertfordshire this exhibition will immerse visitors in Life on Dead Street.
