Far Famed for Sheep and Wool - Sheep fairs and markets of East Ilsley

2:30pm at Newbury Town Hall

Today East Ilsley is a quiet village nestled below the busy A34; most travellers rush by without noticing it. However, in the past, it was renowned for its sheep fairs and markets. In this talk Sue will take us back to those days, when the village was an important trading centre.
