Great Fire of London - Silchester links
Cllr Keith Chapman of Hampshire County Council recently attended an afternoon tea hosted by the Lord Mayor London to mark the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London. The event was to also thank the towns and boroughs who had most contributed to the rebuilding of the City after the Fire. Silchester Parish donated 15 shillings, and this is shown in the records of the time. Photos of the Silchester records can be seen here.
