    5 Quickfire Newbury Facts

    1. Watership Down
      Take a stroll 6 miles south of Newbury and you’ll find a hill named Watership Down, in a stunning area of the Wessex Downs. Author Richard Adams grew up in Newbury and set his most famous novel Watership Down here.
    2. Write On!
      Richard Adams isn’t the only famous author to have called Newbury ‘home’. Michael Bond (creator of Paddington Bear) and Sebastian Faulks (Birdsong, Charlotte Grey, Pistache) are among the towns other famous residents that have included; Keith Chegwin (TV presenter), Theo Walcott (Arsenal & England footballer), Sir Frank Williams (motorsport).
    3. And They’re Off!
      Home of the Hennessy Cup, Newbury Race Course opened its doors in 1905 but racing had been taking place on the site (unofficially) since 1805. Racing was halted during WWII and the course was used to house German prisoners of war.
    4. Who Dunnit?!?
      The rock band The Who once played at the Corn Exchange but when band members Keith Moon and John Entwistle failed to show up Roger Daltrey and Pete Townsend started their set with help from the support act. When Moon and Entwistle finally arrived and saw they’d been replaced things kicked off between band members. Keith Moon ended the evening with a black eye and broken ankle. Rock and roll!
    5. Doomed
      At the time of the Domesday Book (1086), Newbury had 22 households, 11 villagers, 11 smallholders, 27 acres of meadow, 12 ploughs, 2 mills and 25 pigs. And there wasn’t a coffee shop or drive-through in sight!

    Thank You Over’s

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.

    - Helen Williams – May 2021

    9th Century

    The first signs of settlement in Newbury date back over 8,000 years to the Mesolithic era. Fast-forward to the 9th century and the Anglo-Saxon settlement of ‘Ulvritone’ was rebranded ‘New Burgh’, a burgh being a type of walled settlement. Alfred the Great had a great number (no pun intended) of burghs built as a means to defend Wessex against the pesky Viking army that was keen on capturing the last defiant Anglo-Saxon kingdom.

    11th Century

    Over's Removals

    By the 11th century Newbury was a thriving market town, it had been given a royal charter with rights to hold both a market and a fair, both of which attracted plenty of visitors and merchants to the town which continued to prosper. In 1160 nearby Thatcham was also granted a market which didn’t go down with the good folk of Newbury who stormed the neighbouring town and tore down the stalls. This started a long running and today good-natured rivalry between the two towns.

    17th Century

    Things turned ugly again in the 1600s when Newbury found itself on the frontline of the English Civil War. There were two battles (handily named, The First Battle of Newbury and The Second Battle of Newbury), both times the Parliamentarians came out victors and Donnington Castle was destroyed during the conflict.

    20th Century

    Cloth making helped make the town’s fortune but it was the creation of Newbury Racecourse in the 20th century that really put Newbury on the map. It is now one of the UK’s most famous tracks and holds regular race meets as well as a full calendar of concerts and other events.

    Today the thriving town has a number of major employers, principally in telecommunications and IT, plus military bases in the area that also contribute to employment for both service personal and local companies. Other notable additions to the area include a shopping centre, community hospital and a local vineyard, because it’s always wine o’clock somewhere!
