Heritage Walk: Wartime Newbury

A guided walk within the largely pedestrian town centre to see the sites which played a part in the two World Wars. We shall see where the film ‘The Battle of the Somme’ was shown in 1916, where the Lord Mayor’s coach was stored during WWII, and why the Emergency Bridge was constructed. Buildings, street corners and river banks have a story to tell.

 

YOUR GUIDE:

Jane Burrell is a former curator of West Berkshire Museum. She divides her time between local history research, poetry of the Great War, and theology. 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
