In 1983 a box of magic lantern slides were discovered under the floorboards of the Congregational School Rooms in Cromwell Place. Amongst these were a small number of local views photographed in the latter half of the C19th. This talk will give a rare opportunity to see these views via the modern version of the magic lantern - Powerpoint.


Phil Wood, an enthusiastic local historian, is President of the Newbury District Field Club. For the last few years he has concentrated his efforts into uncovering all there is to know about the large number of pubs and breweries that once seemed to fill the town. Study of the existing pubs also gives him the opportunity for some enjoyable field work!
