Wash Common

Wash Common

Wash Common is a small suburb to the south of Newbury, Berkshire. It used to be a separate village until both places grew into each other, making distinguishing between them difficult.

It is the location of five Bronze Age tumuli and the site of the First Battle of Newbury. It is also the home of the Falkland Memorial and Falkland Primary School (named after Lucius Cary, 2nd Viscount Falkland, who fell at the First Battle of Newbury), Park House Secondary School and Sports College, St George's Church (Anglican), St Francis de Sales Church (Roman Catholic), Glendale Church (Independent), three pubs (The Gun The Old Bell and The Bowlers Arms ), Falkland Cricket Club and Newbury Rugby Club.
