Chieveley is a large parish four miles north of Newbury in west Berkshire. What started as a book about the author’s memories of the village over 70 years has, with the help of his wife and a local friend, escalated into 79 short chapters of anecdotes, facts and memories. Illustrated with eight pages of photographs in the middle of the book, this is a good read for anyone interested in the (relatively) recent Gleanings history of the village.
