History of Newbury
Newbury was originally a Mesolithic settlement. There is some doubt about the existence of the Newbury Castle, though the town certainly had royal connections and King John had visited it several times. The main trade was the cloth trade, with the first factory of Britain being built here by Jack O’Newbury, and the façade of the house can still be seen in Marsh Lane near Marks and Spencer. The cloth trade was later disrupted in the 16th century due to the civil War and the town became impoverished. When Bath came up as a popular destination for the rich, it boosted the economy of Newbury as well, with an increase in coaching inns.

Newbury is a charming market town, previously known as the village Ulverton. During the Wars of the Roses in the 15th century, the Duke of York owned it and it later became a Royal Borough. The famed Newbury Racecourse can be seen in the south-eastern border of the town. Even today, the town is famed for many of its 17th century buildings.
