Archaelogical and Historical Group Publishes Journal on North Side of Friday Street

Journal No. 28Journal N0. 28, December 2014 of the Henley-on-Thames Archaeological and Historical Group has been published. This issue is devoted to the buildings and people of the North side of Friday Street. Ruth Gibson has provided articles about several groups of buildings describing how they were built and evolved over the years.
A companion web-page provides information about the residents extracted from the census returns 1841 – 1901. The data has been analyzed and presented in the form of graphs and tables with associated narrative. The reader can click on links to delve into more detail, to identify the occupations of the resident workers, the tanners, iron founders and chimney sweeps etc. and the people who shared their households. Readers are invited to go to:
