Editor’s Note:

15th September 2016. 

The ‘Remount Depot’ was the start of the ‘Arborfield Garrison’ and went on to see the construction of the Arborfield Army Technical School which opened in 1939.  The stables, or sick bay, for the horses is the only remaining building from those very early days.  Steve Bacon runs the Arborfield Village History site and very kindly reviewed our site and made some photos available to us (see Army Remount Depot Stables photo above).  He has since produced an article ‘Stampede on Barkham Road’ which can be accessed by clicking on the title which leads to an external site.  It contains a lot more detail and is published in the ‘Wokingham Remembers’ site.

A backup copy of the ‘Stampede on Barkham Road’ article is available on site in a pdf. format and can be accessed by using the link below. Please allow time for the download to complete.
