Hidden Henley

ALONG Wargrave High Street are two little-known public access points to the Thames.

ALONG Wargrave High Street are two little-known public access points to the Thames.

The one in my picture is at the junction with the Crazies Hill road and indicated by a “restricted byway” sign, although I don’t know what the restrictions are.

The pathway is bordered by Ferry House and 6A High Street and wide enough to get a small boat through.

A few metres along the road by the St George & Dragon pub is the other access where there used to be a ferry to take people to the opposite bank.

The adjacent boatyards have closed and large properties now dwarf the remaining landing stages but presumably the right-of-way still exists.

The ferry does still run once a year during the Wargrave and Shiplake Regatta.
