Meldreth Then and Now

Side-by-side comparisons of Meldreth Scenes

By Joan Gane

See how Meldreth has changed over the last century or so by browsing the photographs on this page.

The idea for this page arose from a presentation I gave at one of Meldreth Local History Group's Coffee Mornings in October 2018.

Malcolm Woods took most of the modern-day photographs that are on this page specifically for that coffee morning, whilst others were taken by Francesca Churchill in 2016. We are grateful to both of them for their help.
