Local History



Meetings are held on the last Thursday in the month.

The aim of the Group is to delve into the history of local areas by using information from libraries, books, leaflets etc, as well as having speakers from historical places and following them up with visits to the locations.

We have, so far, studied places of historical interest in Bracknell, Warfield, Binfield, Winkfield and Ascot, but there are plenty more to look into.

Also, we have had guided visits to South Hill Park, Easthampstead Park, Lily Hill Park and Newbold College and gardens, as well as a number of historical churches in the areas and the Museum of Rural Life at Reading University.

We have further places of interest to study and speakers to give interesting talks.
