Hidden Henley

THERE is no date on this favourite local curiosity but my guess is that it is as least 20 years old.

THERE is no date on this favourite local curiosity but my guess is that it is as least 20 years old.

It is a memorial to a dog call Minty in the form of an engraved stainless steel plate set in concrete at the edge of a public footpath in Remenham.

It says: “To all who may pass this way, please read the tribute. Stand to the memory of Minty, a little dog with a big heart. He roamed these fields and woods in happy freedom, waiting always at this place for his mistress. He gave with all the love and affection he had to offer. Eight years of absolute happiness to two elderly humans. Thank you, Minty - wherever you are.“

This also happens to be an excellent place to look across to Henley. In the late afternoon on a winter’s day you may see the sun sinking below the horizon on the other side of the river - a beautiful sight which makes you feel privileged to live here.
