Ian Wilkes talk on ‘The history of Havering’

Ian Wilkes, chairman of the Havering Museum Ltd came to Havering DARC to give us an interesting talk on the history of Havering and the recent addition of a Museum in Romford. Ian added “Havering is full of rich history, with the unique status of having been a Royal Liberty”

The museum’s collections include medieval silver pennies, 19th century weights and measures, clay pipes sold by local pubs, Blacksmiths’ tools, a 1930s wedding dress, sports trophies and World War Two mementoes. Objects in the museum are separated into themes including farming, transport and childhood and there are five pods telling the stories of Havering-atte-Bower, Hornchurch, Romford, Rainham and Upminster and their surrounding areas.
