Heritage Walk: Tudor Newbury
A walk to explore Newbury in the 16th century, when the cloth industry was thriving locally, visiting historic locations and surviving buildings. It includes the Guildhall which used to stand in the middle of the Market Place, a visit to St Nicolas Church (built in the reign of Henry VIII, and the place where the Newbury martyrs were tried in Queen Mary’s reign); to the site of the West Mills (where cloth was processed and finished); and to the surviving part of Jack of Newbury’s house, just off Northbrook Street.
David Peacock researches, writes and lectures on the history of the Newbury area. He is the author of The Story of Newbury (2011), has written for local newspapers, taught evening classes, and given talks to many clubs and societies.
Each walk lasts about 1½ hours and has limited spaces. Bespoke walks can be arranged. Please note: Walks start at the Corn Exchange, except for the Wash Common walks
Tickets are available from: Newbury Corn Exchange, Market Place, Newbury, RG14 5BD
