Chiseldon Remembers WWI
Chiseldon Camp opened in August 1914 and many thousands of men and women were trained, hospitalised or demobilised there.  As well as the home nations, ANZACs, South Africans and Canadians were all at the camp.

CLHG would like to collect any stories or pictures relating to the camp or the men listed on the village's War Memorials, either for display in our museum or to be retained in our archives.  All original material will be returned to you after digitising.

We're now on Facebook and Twitter

Our Next Meeting
Wednesday, March 18th, at 7.30 pm in The Church Hall, Butts Road, Chiseldon.

‘Longitude’

How did we first manage to measure longitude accurately, and why is Greenwich the zero degree position?  And what did Sir Cloudesley Shovell’s tragic end have to do with it?

This month’s talk is by Alan Morton
, a long-time member of CLHG and present Treasurer.

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