BUCKDEN HIGH STREET

Our key question after half term is 'how important is the High Street in Buckden'?

The aim of this topic is to identify how Buckden High Street has changed over time, with regard to the different shops and amenities (hairdressers, flower shops, fruit and vegetable shops).  We will also look at the shops over the road from school and how they have changed,  Our sustainable development goal is about 'decent work and economic growth', hence the focus on the shops. 

Our time scale ranges from the Tudor period up until now.
