    5 Quickfire Wallingford Facts

    1. Big Time
      Although now in Oxfordshire, during Saxon times Wallingford was the county town of Berkshire and the largest town in the region. It was so important that it was one of the first towns William the Conqueror visited after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. He even built a castle that would dominate the history and fortunes of the town. The Domesday Book recorded Wallingford as having 44 inhabitants, 22 of them Frenchmen, prominent townsfolk at the time included Gilbert of Ghent, Robert d’Oilly and Hugh the large.
    2. Fiiiiight!
      Wallingford played a major part of The Anarchy, the civil war that raged between Empress Matilda and King Stephen. Having been defeated by the King, Matilda fled, decided on moving to Wallingford and made herself at home in the castle. Stephen attacked the town 3 times in just over a decade and it was mostly the locals that suffered (Matilda was tucked away behind the thick castle walls thank you very much!). The war was finally ended by the Treaty of Wallingford, signed at the castle, which decided the fate of all England and would make Henry II the future King.
    3. The Prince
      The Black Prince was also a fan of Wallingford Castle and made it one of his homes where he held a number of grand tournaments. Europe’s largest ever jousting tournament was held there. It’s also where his wife, ‘the Fair Maid of Kent’ died.
    4. Bit of a Turpin
      Another visitor to the town is believed to be the legendary highwayman Dick Turpin who stayed at the George Inn on several occasions. The pub also has tales of three ghosts, the daughter of a former landlord who locked herself in her room after she heard about the death of her lover and the ghosts of two young children have been reported by several guests in Room 5. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
    5. Wallingford vs Abingdon
      When nearby Abingdon opened their own market in the 14th century, the people of Wallingford weren’t happy. In fact, they were so annoyed they marched on Abingdon, destroyed the market, ransacked the town and demanded the town no longer have a right to hold markets. Despite the town’s royal connections (King Henry had held his first ever meeting in the town), Henry couldn’t overlook the Wallingford’s behaviour and ruled in favour of Abingdon.

    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.
