Love Worcester Heritage Festival: Dandy Row

    • 10th February 2015

    If you were following our blog posts in November you will remember our series about Dandy Row which we featured as part of the Explore Your Archive campaign. We began to research the history of this small terrace of houses after finding a photo in the archives which dated back to about 1900 and subsequently discovered characters such as Jeremiah Pitt, Albert Dufty, Nathaniel Wale and Mrs Tandy.

    The photograph which sparked interest in Dandy Row. With thanks to Mr Gwillam for use of this image.

    We thought that Dandy Row and some of its inhabitants were so interesting we wanted to revisit them and share some of the information that we had gathered. With this in mind we have planned an event for children and families on Saturday 14th February 10-3 as part of the Love Worcester Heritage Festival.

    Children will have the chance to handle objects similar to those that residents might have used and find out how they lived as well as draw some of the people who lived in Dandy Row. We will also have a story about Mrs Tandy the Washer Woman, written especially for this event.

    The event will take place in the Children’s Library at the Hive and is part of the Love Worcester Heritage Festival. More details about the Festival and other events taking place can be found at
