A thriving market town once situated in Berkshire, but now in Oxfordshire, Wallingford has a lot to offer both the local residents and the passers-by. With regular local markets and a welcoming town centre, Wallingford is a proud promoter of independent trade. Notable historical attractions in the area include the war memorial, the ancient public houses and the bliss countryside surrounding the town. Wallingford is the proud host of the annual Bunk Fest folk festival. Previous events of a similar nature were held at the atmospheric Wallingford Castle, for which the ruins are now a popular point of interest for the modern visitor. Author David Beasley uncovers the area's fascinating past in this illustrated history, which safely demonstrates that Wallingford is a fine example of an Oxfordshire town.
