Local History

We meet usually on a Thursday evening at 8 pm every two months or so. We share anecdotes, pictures, maps and information about all things Shiplake past. Using maps dating back to the 1800s, we are considering how the village has changed and developed geographically and the effects of roads, river and rail passing through. Making oral recordings of chats with long standing residents is bringing history to life and preserving it for the future.
