“The remarkable story of our National chair”, an online talk by Stuart Linford
8pm Wednesday 20th January 2021
This classic design was created in the Thames valley at the beginning of the 18th Century. Windsor chairs are a large family of designs ranging from simple stickbacks through to interlaced Gothics. They all share one construction method; all Windsor chairs have a solid wooden seat into which the arms, legs and back are socketted. Put simply Windsor construction means a piece of wood with holes in that all the parts are driven into.

TADS was founded in 1984 for people with an interest in local history. Our village has a very diverse and interesting past, populated with both benefactors and tyrants. Inhabitants of Tadley were involved in Regicide and the “Parliament Fart” . Tadley has stories of unique exorcisms and ghosts. Stagecoaches used the two local turnpikes and at other times balloons and planes crashed locally. Spitfires were assembled in Hanger Road. Past plans have even included flooding much of the surrounding area and building a tunnel under Tadley. It is a place where rural crafts excelled and where Oxford and Eton fought for land rights.
