NONCONFORMISTS AND THEIR CHAPELS IN ODIHAM AND NORTH WARNBOROUGH by Mary Ann Bennett

This book covers not only the people who worshipped and preached here and in all the nonconformist chapels in Odiham and North Warnborough but also includes the struggle to keep it open, the building of London Road School (now the Vine Church) and the role of evangelists who were employed to make house to house visits, preach in cottages or, when necessary, in the open air. From the men of note who ran it, who were barred from public office because of their faith, to the scandal of a failed preacher, William Spurgeon. He stayed in office after a series of sexual assaults, largely due to hanging on the coat-tails of his famous cousin Charles Haddon Spurgeon. This small book exposes the power struggle and frailties of those trying to maintain alternative forms of worship in a largely Church of England town.

 


 

The book is available from Odiham Society meetings and speaker events or from Odiham Cards, price 2.50, or 3.50 by post from Marion Swalheim, 3 Western Lane, Odiham, Hampshire, RG29 1TJ, to include postage and packing. Please click here to print an order form

LAST ORDERS PLEASE!
by Sheila Millard
Learn whether your property was ever a public house.

The Odiham Society is transporting readers who enjoy the public houses of the parish back in time with the launch of a new publication, Last Orders, Please! 

Locally grown high quality malting barley and hops led to the proliferation of brewing and the equivalent to one licensed house for every 125 inhabitants including children by the end of the 19th century. Most of the establishments converted from front rooms gave rise to a new breed of part-time landlord, enjoying a second income. 

Readers will learn where their predecessors ordered a winter supply of coal with their pint of beer.  Some will even discover that their own home was once one of these licensed premises.  

Author Sheila Millard discovered from gardening at her own High Street home that it had also once been a public house: I found the remains of literally hundreds of pieces of 17th century clay pipe stems and even complete bowls in the ground. An archaeologist confirmed her suspicion. It was the site of the former Crown. 

The history of the public houses of Odiham and North Warnborough therefore makes a fascinating read and a great illustrated companion when visiting the many establishments still in operation today.

The book is available from Odiham Society meetings and speaker events or from Odiham Cards, price 4.50, or 5.50 by post from Marion Swalheim, 3 Western Lane, Odiham, Hampshire, RG29 1TJ to include postage and packing. Please click here to print an order form.


THE ODIHAM TEA TOWEL

The Odiham Society has sponsored both the design and production of an Odiham Tea Towel, made in pure cotton and available from the Katherine Jane gift shop and Odiham Cards, price 6.00.

The Odiham tea towel is also available at 7.50 by mail order, from
Marion Swalheim, 3 Western Lane, Odiham, Hampshire, RG29 1TJ.    Please make your cheque payable to "The Odiham Society". Please click here to print an order form.

The design incorporates several sketches of well-known buildings, landmarks and scenes in and around Odiham, drawn by Ray Millard and reproduced by kind permission of the Society's Archivist and Vice-President, Sheila Millard, MBE. It makes an excellent gift all year round, and provides a beautiful memento for anyone who has recently visited Odiham.
