Scope and content

On January 5th 2004 the hunt met at Weald Manor. They usually meet the Monday before Christmas but the weather meant that meet had to be cancelled and rescheduled. They met in 2003 in the new year too.
In the photos taken early C20th Martins the printing works and post office can be seen on the west side of the Market Square. It is now a private house (2014) and was last run as a grocery shop and pet food store by Adrian Simmonds. The hunt is gathered in the road outside. The Lamb Inn is on the extreme right with the large Ash tree outside; most locals used to say they were going to The Tree for a drink because of the large tree outside.
There are gates in the wall across the road giving access to Little Place from Cheapside. In 1904 Goodman's the tea dealers premises were pulled down to make way for this carriage entrance to Little Place and this building can be seen on the front page of this website.
The Old Berks hunt meet was always a source of great interest. In the 2nd very old photo note the horses' tails have all been docked very short. They are meeting between the west side of the Town Hall and Constables the bakers.
