    6 Quirky Facts About Wallingford

    1. Agatha Christie
      The world-famous mystery writer lived close to Wallingford for over 40 years. She wrote some of her most famous novels while living at Winterbrook House and was buried at St Mary’s Church in nearby Cholsey. Amateur sleuths can track down the Agatha Christie trail, a 5-mile walk taking in sites associated with her life and works.
    2. It’s Murder!
      Agatha Christie isn’t the only one to have ‘committed murder’ in the area, Wallingford doubled as Causton, home of Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby, the lead character of TV’s Midsomer Murders.
    3. It’s Great!
      That’s Alfred the Great who was responsible for building up the town. Alfred created a series of ‘burghs’ which were fortified towns to help keep the marauding Vikings at bay. The Norsemen controlled Dane Law (the northern parts of England) and at various points much of Mercia which bordered with the Kingdom of Wessex. It was through these positions that Alfred was able to push the Vikings back and the eventual realisation of his vision of a single kingdom of ‘Englaland’.
    4. Dick Turpin
      Another famous figure linked with Wallingford is the Britain’s most famous highwayman, Dick Turpin. The George is claimed to have been one of his favourite bolt-holes. Local legend tells how he would use a room on the first floor with his horse Black Bess tied beneath the window, so that in the event of his being rumbled by the law, he could jump onto his horse and make a speedy getaway. We hope he paid for his round first!
    5. A Tale of Two Castles
      Wallingford was one of the strongholds of the Royalist army during the English Civil War. King Charles I had made Oxford his new capital. He strengthened Wallingford Castle and placed a garrison there. Like many of his castles, Wallingford was attacked towards eh end of the war and despite the fact that Charles had surrendered, Colonel Blagge refused to surrender the castle to the great Sir Thomas Fairfax. Blagge held strong until eventually supplies ran out and he was allowed to march from the castle “with flying colours, trumpets sounding, drums beating, matches lighted at both ends, bullets in their mouths and with bag and baggage”. With Blagge and his troops gone, Fairfax set about destroying the castle, some of the stone and timbers were taken and used to build a new section at Windsor Castle.
    6. Not Again!
      It wasn’t the first time the castle had been under siege, during the Anarchy the castle was held by Brian fitz Count who was loyal to Empress Matilda. Stephen of Blois attacked the castle and even built two new castles in the town to keep Wallingford’s defenders locked inside their walls. Matilda’s forces attempted to free Wallingford, destroying one of the new castles but were unable to break the deadlock. Stephen attacked again in 1145 and 1152 but both attempts failed. The final siege led to the Treaty of Wallingford at which Matilda agreed that Stephen should be made king on the condition that her son Henry would be his heir. When Henry II took the throne, he showed his gratitude to the town with a charter allowing Wallingford to hold markets, which ensured the town would prosper.

    About Wallingford

    Midsomer Murders, Agatha Christie, Vikings and empresses, sieges and decisions that affected the lineage of England’s kings, little Wallingford has been at the centre of some pivotal moments in English history that might surprise many for a town of its size and peaceful nature. Alfred the Great was behind the formation of the town and subsequent royals have hidden in the town, run away from the town, even attacked the town. Today it is far more peaceful and a hive for independent shops and in particular antiques.

    Leisure

    Wallingford Museum, three golf courses, three riding centres, two leisure centres, one with a swimming pool and the Corn Exchange which offers live performances, music and movies. The town hosts a popular food festival and the highlight of the calendar is Wallingford Carnival. The town also puts on a large Bonfire Night display.

    Transport

    Both the M4 and M40 are within easy reach giving access to the M25, Heathrow and the Midlands plus routes west. Oxford commuters can be in the city in 30 minutes. There is no rail station with former national lines now forming part of Cholsey and Wallingford Railway, a picturesque heritage route.
