Thatcham has a population just shy of 25,000 and an interesting history to go with it – and that’s not just local pride, we really do. Even the Guinness Book of Records recognises Thatcham, and no not for something utterly daft, but for being the “oldest continuously inhabited place in Britain.”
There’s plenty of evidence to prove it, one of which is a Mesolithic settlement which goes all the way back to 7,000 BC. Not only that, but throughought the ages there’s been a Roman Town, and also Bronze and Iron era evidence of people settling here.
Throughout its history, under many different names, Thatchham has been a place that people have lived in.
There’s been various attractions along the way, plenty of reasons people would be attracted to this beautiful place, from man-made buildings such as the Chapel of St. Thomes the Martyr – which is now the Old Bluecoat School, for those who didn’t know that – and more natural places of interest, like the Thatchham Reed Beds.
Taste the Cracklin can’t claim to have quite as much history as the town does… not as a company, that is. Hog roasting itself on the other hand shares with Thatchham a history that goes a long way back.
Hog roasting was always a treat, savoured by kings, queens and peasants alike, today it still holds a special place in peoples hearts as an event favourite, found at most big occasions.
It’s our aim to continue on with that trend and find as many events in Thatcham as possible to hog roast for – hopefully yours too!
