Historical Society: Richard Dudding ‘The Deserted Settlements of Radley’

Members free, visitors £3

Richard Dudding will talk on: ‘The Deserted Settlements of Radley. National Causes and a Local Case Study

Richard Dudding read history at Cambridge (supervised by a youthful Simon Schama), after which he worked in central government and then Oxfordshire County Council. The move to Oxfordshire brought his family to their current home, a cruck house in Radley, which helped to rekindle his interest in history.

He currently chairs the Radley History Club, one of the most active in the area. He has written Early Modern Radley, people land and buildings 1547-1768 (2014) and was the lead author of Radley Manor and Village, a thousand year story (2019).

Looking ahead:

  • 25th March, Keith Parry will talk on ‘Thames Bridges between Reading and Oxford’
  • 19th May, guided tour of the Fairmile Hospital site at Cholsey, led by Ian Wheeler. Meet by the Great Hall at 2 p.m., suggest car share and donation of £3 per person. More information from Sue Popham

Visitors and new members are always very welcome to our talks and outings.
