Not an easy place to find, but well worth the effort. A picture box setting on the Thames, full of wildlife and not too many people, just locals.

Very picturesque English village that has a 12th century church that is worth seeing. Fantastic stone bridge over the river and the Thames path is accessible. Fantastic place to stop off and have an ale in the pub.

For a stroll and a pub stop amid houses and lanes that seem to proclaim that Miss Marple is nearby, pretending to garden, this is hard to beat. Together with the lock and the river, it's a five-spot experience, particularly after a cider in the...More
