Tadley and District History Society (TADS)

TADS was founded in 1984 for people with an interest in local history.

Join us at TADS

Tadley  has a very diverse history, populated with both benefactors and tyrants. Past 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.
