Church-Speen: The History of a Parish Church


Jane Burrell

24 November 2015

7:30pm at St John's Parish Room

Today the small settlment of Church Speen, once at the centre of the large parish of Speen, is barely more than a suburb of Newbury - but it has a rich history. This talk will look at that history focusing of the role of the church of St Mary the Virgin.


Jane Burrell, former Curator of West Berkshire Museum, needs little introduction to members of the Field Club having served on the Club's committee for many years. From 2012 to 2015 she also served as a Churchwarden of St Mary's, Speen.
