Redbourn Village Museum

Arts, Culture and Entertainment

Redbourn Village Museum explores the history of the village of Redbourn, near St. Albans in Hertfordshire. It is attractively sited in the 19th century Silk Mill House overlooking Redbourn Common and surrounded by gardens with seating and outdoor exhibits.

You will get an extraordinary glimpse of the village throughout its varied history. A colourful frieze illustrates some of these trades, creating a bright image of Redbourn’s social history. As well as those working in agriculture, the villagers did straw plaiting and found jobs in the hat factory, silk mill, jam factory and later the Brooke Bond tea packing factory. There are displays on all of these and also the coaching inns and railway, known locally as The Nickey Line.
