My High Street, My Heritage

The Heritage Lottery funded Open-City's My City Too programme to carry out a project exploring the heritage and evolution of the local high street. On Acton and Romford high streets, on opposing sides of London, young people carried out building surveys, explorations and research examining the changes and development of their high street through history. The process was filmed and documented with the young people, as they examined their findings and what they learned to try to understand further what we value in terms of our local architectural heritage.
