“Winchcombeshire – the forgotten county” – Tim Porter


Just over a thousand years ago a shire centred on the town of nearby Winchcombe existed – but for just ten  years only!  This talk by respected local historian Tim Porter tells its story:  why it appeared ……. and then disappeared so suddenly; the ancient importance of Winchcombe itself; the people and the politics involved; and the extent of its territory which of course included Stow-on-the-Wold.  Come and discover some little-known history of our local area.
