Our Next Meeting

Our next meeting on Wednesday 7th December is our annual Christmas Party and Quiz for members and their friends.  Members should bring their own drinks and seasonal nibbles.

Teams of up to four people are welcome, as are individual quizzers who will be teamed up on the night.

The fun starts at 7.30 pm in the Church Hall, Butts Road, Chiseldon SN4 0NJ!

Our first meeting in 2017 is on Wednesday, January 18th, when Malcolm Collinson is giving a talk on ‘Drinking in the Georgian and Regency Periods’.

Meetings are free to members, but there is a £3.00 charge for visitors.  Why not join us?  Membership is still only £10 a year.  For details of the 2016 programme of talks and events, click here.

Chiseldon Museum
The Museum in The Old Chapel, Butts Road is now closed for the winter.  It will re-open in April with new displays to supplement the permanent exhibition.  Watch this space!

Please let us know if you have any objects or photos relating to the history of the parish which we could add to our collections.

The Chiseldon Mile
(The Calley Mile Challenge Cup)
We are asking if anybody remembers this sporting event which happened every August on Chiseldon Rec. until the 1950s at least.  The cup awarded to the winner has recently come to light.

We received the following email from Mrs Joyce Miller: ‘I remember this well, it was the Calley Mile Challenge Cup.  My late husband, Arthur R Miller, won this in 1957 at the age of forty.  I have a silver replica cup.’

If anybody else has any more information – memories, photos, press cuttings – please get in touch via the website, email or ‘phone.

We can offer talks to interested groups on the village and its history, on the Cauldrons and on Chiseldon Camp. Please get in touch via the website, email or phone for more details.
