Dow’s Pharmacy

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Built in 1859 in Chiltern and bought by Hilda and Roy Dow in 1930, the unique Dow’s Pharmacy displays a fascinating history of a country pharmacy with its original fittings, products, records and equipment.

The pharmacy closed its doors in 1968 with much of its content still intact. It has much of the original shop’s pharmaceutical equipment, including that used to prepare medicines prior to the advent of modern dispensing.

In June 1988, Mrs Hilda Dow donated Dow’s Pharmacy to the National Trust.
