Memory Lane: Looking back to slum clearance

The Housing Act of 1930 and further slum clearances in the 1960s saw the demolition of many North End yards.

Fortunately for True’s Yard a Lynn photographer, Percy Goodchild, captured images of some of the yards before they were lost forever.

Periods of change like the slum clearances and the current pandemic are the subject of True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum’s new oral history project: Great Change – The Last Generation.

This aims to capture some of the memories of these events before they are lost and to create a record of the change the local community is experiencing at present.

If you wish to take part in the project you can contact the museum on 01553 770479 or info@truesyard.co.uk.
