A history of Southcote and its Manor Online Talk

For those interested in Berkshire's rich history

Look hard enough and there’s no such thing as an “ordinary suburb”.

Drawing on research for Reading Libraries booklet on Southcote, Mike Cooper looks at the origins of Southcote as a medieval manor, its development as a rural community and then, in the second half of the 20th century, its transformation into a planned residential suburb.  Along the way, there’s a Saxon sheriff, an Elizabethan mathematician, and the Home Guard.

Pre-booking is required, because the event link will be sent in advance.  

2 - 3.15pm
