Penny Stokes talks about the book she has recently published to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Greenham Trust, The Common Good: The Story of Greenham Common. To many people the words 'Greenham Common' conjure up an image of peace women in conflict with the police, but behind this lies a much longer and more varied history.
A new book by Penny Stokes described the many dramas which have taken place on the common: from Redcoat musters to refugee housing, golf to glider warfare, furze-gathering to filming, and bare-knuckle prize-fighting to bomb storage. Thanks to Greenham Trust which, as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations is publishing this book, the common has been restored as Berkshire's largest heathland and returned to public ownership.Please note there has been a change to the date of this event.
