Horse Fair & fair across the west side of the town hall

  • BCA - 2022.3448
  • Item
  • 2022

Horse fair and fun fair seen outside the west side of the Market Square. It would also have filled the Market Square. The Inn at the top left of the photograph is the Lamb, known by locals as The Tree because of the large Ash tree growing outside it. The Inn was completely demolished in 1960 to make way for building the Market Square Garage. The sign for the Talbot hotel shows the landlord to be W Norman. Almost every man wears a hat.

  • BCA - 2022.3604
  • Series
  • 1999

The Trout part way along the road from Bampton to Buckland is a very popular eating place. It is on the Thames and many fishermen and women have the right to have a rod there and they go to the pub, eat and fish. A cycle path would have been a wonderful addition to safe riding and these pictures are taken from scanned black and white negatives.

Riders included:

  • Jo Lewington
  • Dr Matthew Perry & wife Carole
  • Freda Bradley
  • Bishop Paul Burroughs
