Here’s something a little different: a video on YouTube showing a drive around the village way back in 1987! It’s surprising how similar a lot of the place looks – in many places it could almost be from the present day if there weren’t all the old Escorts and Astras and things about.

“The Ridges near Wellington College”
“The Ridges, Wellington College”
This card actually depicts Wellingtonia Avenue. The Ridges, which are in Finchampstead rather than Crowthorne (and are now owned and managed by the National Trust), are at the far end of the road. There is now a roundabout where the junction is shown in the foreground.
