... is on Wednesday, February 21st at 7.30 pm in The Church Hall, Butts Road, Chiseldon SN4 0NJ.
Nick Baxter will be giving a talk entitled ‘Victorian Marlborough’.
During the reign of Queen Victoria, Marlborough was a very different place from that which it is now. The gasworks, prison, workhouse, tanneries, brewery and railway stations have all disappeared – but their influence survives.
Meetings are free to members, but there is a £3.00 charge for visitors. Why not join us? Membership is still only £10 a year. For details of the 2017-18 programme of talks and events, click here.
We can offer talks to interested groups on the village and its history, on the Cauldrons and on Chiseldon Camp. Please get in touch via the website, email or phone for more details.
Many thanks to Peter Derbyshire and Mac Lawson of Wroughton who have renewed the handle on the bier in the Chiseldon Museum, and made a splendid job of it!
