tHISTORIAN Elizabeth Hazeldine is appealing for help in finding images for her new book.

It will focus on the murder of Kate Dungey, which took place at Lambridge Farm in Henley in December 1893.

Ms Hazeldine, of Adwell Square, Henkey, said: “I need, if possible, to track down pictures of two buildings that once stood in Henley, to be included in the book. The first is Radnor House, now the site of Radnor Close in New Street, which once belonged to the murder victim’s employer and was also at the time of the murder occupied by Arthur Wright, whose wife gave one of the suspects in the crime an alibi.

“The second was the home of Charles Singer, a member of the Society of Friends.

“He lived at Hazeldean, which stood on the Reading Road, close to the junction with St Andrew’s Road, and with the support of his fellow Quakers offered assistance to the suspected murderer.”
