Over a thousand years of village life
Moving into a new area can open up a whole new interest in the living history of our countryside. What has happened in your own house over the years? Why does your road have the name it does? Why is the Wallingford Road so straight? What stories can be told of that funny house that looks like a pub? From the Ice Age to the Millennium Celebrations, Change at Cholsey – Again tracks the social history of the parish as it grew from a tiny Saxon settlement to the commuter village we now know. Packed with maps, photographs and drawings the book provides an interesting read for new arrivals and old friends of the village.Profits from the sale of the book are invested back into the community by Cholsey 1000 Plus.
