  • DEREK BUCKLER, who, in 1946, designed the first Buckler sports car at his home, 85 Woodcote Road. Over 300 Buckler cars were eventually made at Bucklers of Reading, 67 Caversham Road and also at their works in Crowthorne. He was also to produce the first chassis for Brabham Racing Cars and was involved in many other similar projects. A number of Buckler cars are still on the road, both in Britain and overseas and The Buckler Register was formed to trace the cars and their heritage and to get owners together. More information on
  • Dr Richard Hinds who emigrated to The Swan River Colony ( now Perth Western Australia) in 1837 and gave the name of Caversham Rise to the 1452 acre allotment of land he purchased on the western bank of the Swan River north of Guildford, WA. His main claim to fame as far as I can tell is that he may have been the person responsible for the construction of the converted stable I am currently living in.
