Walk through Petersfield and learn about the changing face of this market town and its high street.

The rise of the online retailer is often blamed for the decline and changing face of the high street over the last two decades. This walk along Petersfield High Street will explore the changes that have occurred over the past 2,000 years from livestock markets, coaching inns, a corn exchange and an Austin bank, to Woolworths, Curry’s and other changes in living memory. This walk will use images from the Museum’s photographic collection to highlight some of these changes.

Please note:

  • The walk will start and finish outside Petersfield Museum.
  • We advise wearing sensible footwear.
  • If you have not been informed of any cancellations or alterations to the event, please assume it is proceeding as planned.
