This wonderful collection of photos of life in Hungerford 2006-2019 is now available to view.
Tony Bartlett and his wife Muriel moved to Hungerford in 2006. He had a keen interest in photography, mainly at that time on railway photography.
He started to take photos recording many of the events taking place in the wonderful town of Hungerford, and over the next 14 years he quietly and reliably attended key events in the town and became Hungerford's unofficial "official" photographer. He generously shared his great photographs with the press and with anyone who wished to see them.
The groups and events that Tony covered include the Town Council, the Town & Manor, the Chamber of Commerce and various traders in the High St, the churches, the Royal British Legion, Remembrance Day, military parades, the John o'Gaunt, youth groups, the Camera Club, HADCAF (Arts Festival) and the Town Band.
Tony's collection of over 5,500 photographs has created a unique and comprehensive record of Hungerford's life for over a decade.
In 2020, during the Covid pandemic, he decided to lay down his trusty Nikon and tripod and he kindly offered his extensive archive of photographs to the town. The Town Mayor, Helen Simpson, was delighted to accept Tony's generous offer, and after some discussion it was decided that adding the archive to the Hungerford Virtual Museum was the best way to ensure the photos were available to the widest audience.
Enjoy them! They are an amazing collection!
