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.
