Buildings of Kingsclere

Extracted from Margaret Ingrams book - Kingsclere, Place and its People - published in 1987


 

There was extensive building in the 18th and 19th centuries which suggests that this was a prosperous period.

There were many thatched cottages which have now disappeared, the thatched roofs having been replaced with tiles or slate. In the village itself only one thatched cottage remains in The Dell.
