More from Our Village of Spencers Wood



Our most recent book – published December 2016, tells the story of our village of Spencers Wood.

Over 180 pages in words and pictures covering from when it was just a field, to the area we call home now.


Covering natural environment & development, A Walk around The Square (originally the first built on area in the village), The Post office; The Schools (Lambs Lane, Oakbank and the closed Ryeish Green) including the Library (the first Village School); The Village Hall, and the Churches – both the Congregational Chapel (no longer in use) & St Michael’s & All Angels.


A look at the two large houses – Stanbury and Highlands, and how the Village was impacted during the Second World War.


The book is a combination of three years of research with maps and photographs, combining a lot of memories and whilst we have endeavored to be factual, we will have undoubtedly have missed some information out, and made some errors – as all social historians inevitably do.

If you want a copy, pls email our site.

Available at £13 at the Post Office in Spencers Wood, Budgens in Three Mile Cross, or via cheque to Mrs J Blow, Treasurer SWLHG at 10 The Square, Spencers Wood, Berks, RG7 1BS
