Members of Our Oxhey group learned some fascinating facts about the history of our district during a wonderful tour of Three Rivers Museum, given by the current Chair, Barbara Owen.  She is a fount of knowledge on the locality and can recount numerous amusing anecdotes about local people and places

Displays of Oxhey

There is currently a display about Oxhey in the main room, which covers Dove Cottage, Oxhey Chapel, St Andrews precinct and Little Furze.  We were also able to view a collection of material on the Celebration of South Oxhey project.  Members of the group were thrilled to find a large glazed plate from Clarendon School, which lived in the headmasters office, in one of the cabinets.

Displays covering Three Rivers

There are many other interesting exhibits and artefacts covering local shops and pubs, day to day life, William Penn and much more.

Three Rivers Museum is compact, but well worth a visit.  Why not pop in next time you go to Rickmansworth.
