The Impact of the Civil War in Wallingford

Tuesday, 24 October 2017 - 2:30pm

Wallingford was a royalist stronghold throughout the main period of the Civil War from 1642-46, acting as a southern bulwark to the king's court at Oxford. It was also the last stand for the royalists, enduring a final siege of 12 weeks in 1646 when almost all other places had surrendered. The talk will ocnsider Wallingford's role in the war but will also look at the more personal aspects of life at the time for the inhabitants and the repercussions that followed. Judy is a local historian who has studied this period in great detail and will provide a fascinating insight into this very difficult period of our history. Refreshments are available from 2pm
