    6 Quirky Facts About Newbury

    1. Who Did What?!?
      The rock band The Who once came to blows in Newbury. The group were playing at the Corn Exchange but band members Keith Moon and John Entwistle didn’t show up. Not wanting to let their fans down, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townsend started their set with members of the support act. When Moon and Entwistle finally turned up and saw they’d been replaced things came to blows and it’s alleged that Keith Moon ended the evening with a black eye and broken ankle.
    2. Watership Down
      Six miles south of Newbury is a hill named Watership Down, it is a real place sitting in the picturesque Wessex Downs. There is even a real Nuthanger Farm there. The author Richard Adams, who created the tale of rabbits using the hill’s name, grew up in Newbury and is said to have spent many happy summers playing on the downs that inspired and shaped his most famous novel. Adams wrote a number of books about animals including Shardik and The Plague Dogs.
    3. Marmalade Sandwiches
      Another of Newbury’s famous authors is Michael Bond, the creator of the much loved Paddington Bear. Other famous people to have been born or lived in Newbury include, Sebastian Faulks, (author) Keith Chegwin (TV presenter), Theo Walcott (footballer), Sir Frank Williams (F1 motorsport), Alec Hopkins (actor, Harry Potter) and Bruno Brookes (radio DJ).
    4. And They’re Off!
      The first recorded horse race in Newbury was in 1805 but it wasn’t until 1905 that Newbury Race Course opened its doors and held its first official race meeting. Home of the Hennessy Cup, the prestigious site even has its own golf course. During the First World War the race course was used to house German prisoners of war.
    5. Booked
      Newbury was recorded in the Doomsday Book and in 1086 the town had; 12 ploughs, 2 mills, woodland for 25 pigs, 11 ‘villeins’ (farmhands or surfs who were required by law to work for the local landowner), 11 ‘bordars’ peasants who had less land to work than villeins, and 51 enclosures. There’s no mention of a Starbucks or Nandos.
    6. The Newbury Coat
      Perhaps one of the finest bets ever made. In 1811 Sir John Throckmorton bet local mill owner John Coxeter that he couldn’t produce a woollen coat in a single day (sunrise to sunset). News spread, a day set and a huge crowd turned out. The sheep were shorn at 5am, the wool then had to be spun, cleaned, dyed, woven into clothe, then cut by the tailor, the pieces assembled, stitched, lining added, buttons, pockets… But the coat was finished with over an hour to spare! Coxeter won the bet and 1,000 guineas. He spent the money on 120 gallons of beer for the thirsty crowd of 5,000 who had cheered him on. They also feasted on the mutton from the two sheep!

    About Newbury

    About Newbury

    Surrounded by the North Wessex Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Newbury is perhaps best known for its racecourse. A picturesque market town, it sits in the Kennet Valley, a short distance from Oxford, Winchester and Swindon with excellent commuter links and easy access to the M4.

    It was a major stop for coaches (one inn alone had space for 300 horses!) before the arrival of the Great Western Railway taking London gentry from the city to Bath. Later it became known for links to nearby Greenham Common air base and the controversial Newbury bypass, both of which hit the headlines during numerous protests.

    Today it is home to a number of big business, in particular telecommunications, technology and media. It’s also in a region of some great wineries, vineyards and farms, so whether you like your grapes fresh from the vine or fermented, there is certainly plenty of local produce to enjoy.

    Leisure

    There are two theatres, The Watermill and Corn Exchange, a cinema, three golf courses, a leisure centre with gym, swimming pool, sports hall and soft play for younger Newbury newbies. The town has excellent shops and some particularly good restaurants and eateries to enjoy and a good selection of independent shops and even a department store.

    History buffs will have plenty to explore with castles and sites of historic interest in the area but if your passion is speed then both Newbury Racecourse and Donnington Park motor racing circuit are close by. Both venues also host concerts featuring major artists.

    There are also miles of countryside to enjoy with the North Wessex Downs, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the real Watership Down on your doorstep.

    Transport

    Reading, Winchester, Oxford and Swindon are all within 30 minutes of Newbury (by car) and the M4 and M3 are both within easy reach. The nearest airport can be found at Southampton, while fast trains to London take just 42 minutes.
