Alresford Displayed

Alresford Displayed was a publication produced by local people for local people. Isuue No. 1 was published in 1976 and the last issue, that I have been able to identify, was Issue No. 22 in 1997. All the contributions were the Copyright of the authors, which is acknowledged. As I understand it these articles were given freely by the authors and I have assumed, therefore, that there would be no objection to them being reproduced, for no financial gain, on this web site. If, however, any person who owns the copyright has an objection to them being reproduced here I would be pleased if they will contact me.

The articles are reproduced complete with the 'typos' and spelling mistakes of the originals and we can take no responsibility for the accuracy of the content.

In these articles there are countless references to the River Arle. There is no documentary evidence to support this name and all the historical evidence points to the correct name being the River Alre. It became popular to refer to the river as the 'Arle' in the latter half of the twentieth century we believe, mainly, as a result of people reading A.J. Robertson's 1937 book 'History of Alresford' where he misspells the name as 'Arle'.

The digitisation of the publication is now complete and the index is reproduced below.
