THE population of the village of Remenham was almost wiped out by the plague of 1664 and it has been a hamlet ever since.

The church seems large for so few properties. Just inside the entrance is the grave of Mill End lock-keeper Cable Gould who lived to the age of 92 and whose memorial quotes Thomas Grey: “All the world’s a jest and all things show it. I thought so once, but now I know it.”

The lych gate with its fine carvings was produced in memory of Violet Constance Noble of Park Place, now the most expensive property in the UK. The text says that she died suddenly of scarlet fever when she was just 14.
