Mural at the Library


Found this one a few years ago outside Newbury Library but I thought a revisit in order to take some photos of it. As you can see it is quite long so I took a series of frames to give a better idea as it what it was about which is a timeline though Newburys history







Fist frame shows the start of a timeline in 1248





second is the the Newbury Martyrs and the battle of Newbury






Third shows the battles of Newbury






Fourth is the Kennet & Avon Canal






Fifth shows Horse racing and the US 101 airborne at Greenham






 And the last is the 3rd Battle of Newbury in 1996

  8. It's hard for me to imagine living in a town that can date its roots back to 1248. But you've got me wondering what the 3rd battle of Newbury was about. Wonderful mural. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

    1. Thought someone might ask. The third Battle of Newbury was to do with the Newbury Bypass
