Sketches by Bill Cox (1913-1982)) used for the Aldermaston & Wasing Parish Magazine

One of Bill Cox’s many contributions to the local community was the series of sketches he produced of local buildings and views- which he then published on the front cover of the Parish Magazine which he edited for many years. Thanks to Rosemary Campbell and Jean Chapman we have located 52 of his front covers, many of which depict local buildings or views. Almost all of the buildings still stand. The author of the Centenary graphic is not yet known.
