Talk

The origin and evolution of Nantwich High Street

3 July 2024
7pm-8pm

A talk about the history of High Street on the build up to the official opening of 'Our High Street'.

The route of Nantwich High Street was fully established following the erection of the first wooden bridge across the River Weaver, at the very end of the thirteenth century, linking the river crossing to High Towne. Through the succeeding centuries this footprint and street pattern has remained largely unaltered.

The High Street has served as a focus for Nantwich’s trade, markets and fairs and has witnessed the devastations of pestilence, fire, siege and civil war.

Today’s High Street is the legacy of these events and reflects the changing styles and uses of buildings and patterns of trade and business over the centuries.

This talk serves as an introduction to the Museum’s 2024 Summer exhibition which officially opens on 12 July.
