Chiseldon and The Great War
CLHG has recently published a new book! 'Chiseldon and The Great War' has been compiled by Elaine Jones, using material shown in the Museum over the past 4 years to commemorate the men whose names appear on the Memorial Tablet in Holy Cross Church, together with interesting details of village life, institutions and personalities from that time.
It is NOW AVAILABLE at a cost of £7.50. You can order your copy by clicking here. Or you can buy a copy at Oakleys Spar in the village.
Programme 2019 - 20
The programme of talks and events for the coming year has been published and is available here.
The Museum in The Old Chapel, Butts Road is open every Saturday afternoon until the end of September. Details here.
Chiseldon Station Information Board
The Information Board was installed near Oakleys Spar, after a ‘grand unveiling’, on June 16th 2018 by Eric Shaw, attended by a number of villagers. It was made possible by grants from Chiseldon Parish Council and the Calley Memorial Hall Fund.
Further Information Boards are planned. Watch this space!
Talk & Tours
Chiseldon Camp trained thousands of British, American and Commonwealth troops in both World Wars. David Bailey, author of two books on the camp, gives an occasional talk and tour of the site.
'The People in the Church'
Indiscretions, a duel, violence, dodgy dealing, royalty, tragic deaths, gallantry - all these in the stories behind some of the family monuments in Holy Cross Church!
The next Talk and Tour will be published here.
