AGM & Presidential Address (Local Directories)


Phil Wood

11 January 2019

2:30pm at Newbury Town Hall

Non-members £3

Following a short Annual General Meeting our President will speak on the topic of local directories. These publications are an important source for local and family historians, they come in several forms and date back to the 18th Century. What is available for Newbury research, what can you expect to find? Come along and find out.


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! More recently he has been researching the Great War casualties listed on the Newbury War Memorial.
