The diverse suburban town centre

October 7, 2008

I’ve been looking at the photos from one of our suburban field trips and remembered that we’d found a lot of local work in Rickmansworth in buildings that had been semi-industrial (stables, forge etc.).  It’s interesting to see the diversity of businesses on this small back street of the centre – Church Street. The businesses listed in the local directory include:

Accountants
Agricultural Machinery Dealers
Air Conditional Equipment
Anglican Church
Builders Merchant
Business Development Specialists
Cafes and Tea Rooms
Charity Shops
Computer Services
Computers and Computer Systems
Design and Development Engineers
Dry Cleaners
Engineering Consultants
Estate Agents

Newsagents
Opticians
Pharmaceutical Manufacturers
Printers
Pub
Publishers
Social Club
Solicitors
Surveyors and Valuers
Tableware
Textile Manufacturers
Waste Disposal Services
