The business was founded in 1945 formally known as 'Marsh and Russell'. There were originally 13 shops throughout Hertfordshire, today Southdown Hardware is the only one left and is still run by a member of the Russell family. This shop has been a hardware store since the 1950s and the current proprietor, Mr. Russell, has been working here for over 20 years. The small business in Southdown Road has seen many changes but most of the traditions you would have seen in the last decade such as being able to buy loose screws and having curtain wire cut to a specific length in metres (or if you’re old fashioned you can use feet and inches).

This family run business has served the people of Southdown and Harpenden for decades, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, if they don't have it they can get it and they are competitive too.

A huge thank you to Paul for advertising our charity plant sale for "Happy Faces". Thanks to them we managed to raise £611.00.

PS: Also the best hardware shop in Hertfordshire!!!!

How lucky we are that we have this amazing, very well stocked shop with the best and most helpful staff and proprietor here, not many towns boast of an independent hardware shop. I have shopped there loads for 50 years!

Great little shop, helpful advice and a good range of stock. This is exactly the kind of place that is being squeezed out of existence by the big out-of-town monoliths like B&Q etc. But when these places go they never come back, so support your local shop!!
