A History of Wargrave Talk

with Peter Delaney

The village of Wargrave is on the Berkshire bank of the river Thames between Reading and Henley. The parish includes the hamlets of Crazies Hill and Hare Hatch.

Recorded in the Domesday Survey, the talk will look at people, places and events from over 900 years of its history. The story includes kings, queens and bishops, village benefactors, farmers and many others – some well-known, others less so. The impact of forward-thinking villagers, national events, and its growth in the 19th and 20th centuries will be illustrated with photographs from the last 150 years.

After the talk, tea/coffee and cake will be available (included in the price). Pre-booking is preferred, but you can pay on the door, if there are spaces available.

2 - 3.30pm
