Newbury, Berkshire, England: Wells Bakery, Oxford Street, Speenhamland c1900

Media TitleNewbury, Berkshire, England: Wells Bakery, Oxford Street, Speenhamland c1900
Media NotesTravelling up from the Clock Tower to the top of Oxford Street we are now in Speenhamland Village. Here, the road splits. To the left is the main road west through Speen Village and on to Hungerford, Bath and Bristol. To the right is the main road to Wantage, Oxford and the north.

In the centre of this rare colour photograph, is Wells Bakery which was originally the Toll House at which travellers paid their road tolls. The building remained empty for a number of years after the bakery closed around 1950, before being demolished. Many children thought it was haunted!

To the left of the bakery, the large house is called "The Chestnuts". It is still there today, although it has since been refurbished and converted to offices.
