‘The Lost Downland Village of Snap’
A talk by John Dymond
John will trace the history of this prosperous medieval village not five miles from Chiseldon: its ‘boom’, its sudden decline, and its final abandonment at the turn of the 20th century. Not forgetting a curious postscript in the County Court!
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.
