What is the History of Newbury?
From royal hunting grounds to the UK’s answer to Silicon Valley, Newbury boasts a rich and varied history. Although evidence of a Mesolithic settlement has been found in the area, it wasn’t until the 11th century that Newbury was founded. A castle was thought to exist here and the town frequently hosted royalty, including King John and Henry III. As a rural outpost, it was better-known for its hunting grounds than its bustling town amenities.
A burgeoning cloth trade in the 16th century brought development but was later overtaken by a thriving tourism industry. As the half-way point between London and Bath, many visitors stopped en route to relax at the inns. This coaching trade would decline following the opening of the Great Western Railway, and Newbury transitioned back to a sleepy market town with an agriculture-based economy.
That all changed in the 1980s when Vodafone chose to locate its headquarters here. Other high-tech companies followed, and the town still enjoys the prosperity of those industries.
