HISTORY

The Reading Room was built in 1878 by the church and local philanthropists to help the parish's men with literacy - and as an alternative to the pub.  Hundreds of Reading Rooms sprung up around the country in Victorian times.  Chinnor's Reading Room is one of over 50 that survive today as village halls

LOCATION

In a convenient spot at the lower end of the High Street in the large village of Chinnor, south Oxfordshire, the Reading Room has ample on-street parking.  Chinnor is just off the Ridgeway at the foot of the Chilterns, only 10 minutes from J6 of the M40 and 4 miles from the nearby towns of Thame and Princes Risborough
