Another in our occasional series showing images and items of interest from Long Wittenham’s past.
This time, an article from the Oxford Mail dated 3rd October 1958 reporting on a parish council meeting, which suggest that, despite there being far fewer cars on the road in the late 1950s, the problem of traffic speeding through the village was not so different to today.
This article is 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.
