Another in our occasional series showing images and items of interest from Long Wittenham’s past.
With the village’s sewerage system in the news, we have some items from 1962 when the system was installed. First, a newspaper cutting dated 17th July 1962 reporting on the official opening of the system, and two photographs taken during the works to install the system: the first in the High Street looking east towards Riverturn and the second from the same spot looking west.
These items are taken from Mercy Ward’s scrapbooks which are now in the Long Wittenham History Group archive. If you have an interest in local history, why not join the history group? More information on the History Group page.
