Rickmansworth, Croxley Green and Chorleywood Through Time takes the reader on a nostalgic journey back to an age when the pace of life was much slower and more tranquil than it is today. Using a vibrant selection of old picture postcards, many of which have been stored in dusty attics untouched for generations, coupled with superb modern-day colour photographs as a comparison, we witness the many changes that have occurred in these lovely picturesque areas over the past 100 years.


Memories abound: Rickmansworth’s first railway, which opened in 1862, King Edward VII’s visit to Croxley Green in 1909 and countless images of the charming village of Chorleywood, captured on camera by a small but dedicated group of photographers. Without their enthusiasm and commitment in recording for posterity mostly everyday views and occurrences, much of these areas’ pictorial history would have been lost forever.
