An Exhibition of images of the Streets of Hitchin will take place from Saturday 4th to Sunday 19th March at the British Schools Museum, Queen Street, during Museum opening hours.
Hitchin Camera Club launched a community photography project inviting the people of Hitchin to take photos of all the streets of Hitchin from April to September 2016  and upload them to the website "Our Hitchin Our Streets”
Simon Maddison from the club said “We are delighted that 1,248 photos were uploaded. The photos are a really wide range of images capturing the diversity of the town from the residential estates and the industrial areas to the town centre. The hard task has been choosing 140 images to be printed for the exhibition. But we have! Now the public is invited to see Hitchin in a snapshot of time with images of hidden paths, historic landmarks and street details.”
Simon added “In addition to the 140 printed images all 1,248 photos will be showing on a monitor as a rolling slide show”.  and “We are in discussion with the Hertfordshire Museum Service about archiving the photos as we believe the images show Hitchin in a way that will be of interest to future generations.”
