    6 Quirky Facts About Thame

    1. Not Very Civil
      Like many towns across Oxfordshire, Thame was drawn into the English Civil War. King Charles I made Oxford his new capital city after parliament raised an army against him. He concentrated his forces in the area and there were numerous battles across the county during the conflict. Thame found itself occupied by royalists and parliamentarians at different times while the townsfolk probably kept their heads down and hoped they’d leave them in peace soon.
    2. Beery Good
      After the hotpot and football teams, Lancashire’s most famous export is bitter. But Boddington’s owes its routes to Thame and two boozy brothers. In 1832 Henry Boddington joined his older brother and took a clerks’ position at Strangeways Brewery in Manchester. Henry was born at Thame Mill which was owned by his father, the master of Thame’s workhouse. In 1847 Henry became a partner in the brewery and by 1853 had risen to become sole proprietor, changing the company name to Boddingtons. Cheers Henry!
    3. Thame Hoard
      In April 1940, a short distance upstream of the Long Crendon Bridge, local lorry driver Willocks McKenzie stumbled across an incredible find. That stretch of the River Thames had been dredged the previous summer which may have disturbed a hoard of coins and jewellery that had probably lain undiscovered for 400 years. The Thame Hoard consisted of groats (early coins) and 5 ornate rings, dating between the 14th and 16th centuries. The rings were marked with intricate carving, one including a cross, which now forms part of the town’s emblem. The hoard was declared ‘Treasure’ and therefore the property of the Crown. It is now on display at Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum. Poor Willocks got his fifteen minutes of fame but sadly no share of the treasure.
    4. Thame Henge
      Another incredible find in the town was the discovery of a Neolithic enclosure which predates Stonehenge at around 6,000 years old. The site was uncovered during the building of a housing estate in 2015. Further excavations and subsequent work has unearthed a Neolithic henge, Bronze Age spear heads and burial mound, round houses from the Iron Age, a sizeable Roman settlement and Anglo Saxon buildings.
    5. Early Doors
      King Wulfhere of Mercia visited Thame and with his hand upon an alter (showing the earliest signs of Christianity in the area) signed a charter. Thame was also listed in the Domesday Book in 1086 when it had 27 villagers, 26 smallholders, 5 slaves, 34 ploughlands and a mill. The town’s value was 37 pounds.
    6. Greyhound Inn
      One Thame pub has seen its fair share or events (we’re not talking darts league here!). After the Battle of Chalgrove Field during the Civil War, Colonel John Hampden who had been educated at Thame Grammar School was brought back to the town and the house of Ezekiel Browne. That house later became the Greyhound Inn. The inn saw even more battles and became the site where James Figg became a champion prize-fighter, contesting bareknuckle contests with all comers. The pub was renamed the James Figg in his honour. Today it’s far more civilised.
