Find out about how the Windsor Express was founded

Fans of the Windsor Express might be interested in finding out how it all started.

Windsor Local History Group members have spent years researching the story of Windsor bookseller Charles Knight and his son, who founded the paper back in 1812.

Knight Senior's book shop was in the old cobbled area of the town. It used to be visited by King George III who would shout out for 'Knight in the bookshop'.

You can see the history group's presentation on Wednesday (Nov 13) at Waterstones book shop in Peascod Street as part of Thames Valley History Festival.

Tickets are £7.50. Visit www.thamesvalleyhistoryfestival.org or call 01753 743800.
