Redditch Remembered

Allan Foxall and Ray Saunders

Until about 1900, although Redditch was internationally renowned for needle making and the associated fishing tackle industry, it was still a small country town. Then it spawned famous companies such as Herbert Terry & Sons spring makers and the Royal Enfield Cycle and Motor Cycle Company. The town's current shape was prefigured when the Redditch Development Corporation was constituted on 29 May 1964. Redditch New Town is therefore nearing its 40th birthday and itself has become part of the town’s history.

This book has been compiled from the combined archives of Alan Foxall of the Redditch Pictorial History Society, Ray Saunders of R & S Antiques, and the Redditch Advertiser, with additional photography by Alan Foxall. The carefully selected high-quality images will help the people of ‘old’ Redditch relive good memories and evoke talking points. And for those new to the town, it will give them a taste of Redditch as it was when life was lived at a slower pace.

Redditch Remembered is also available in DVD format priced just £14.99. To order your copy call 01332 384235.
