Hidden Henley

OUT of respect for the owners, it would be best to simply glance at this plaque

OUT of respect for the owners, it would be best to simply glance at this plaque on Ferry House as you walk down the lane to the area known as Aston Ferry.

True to its name, this once offered a ferry trip across the Thames to Hambleden Place on the other side.

Both the Berkshire and Buckinghamshire banks are now public launching slips for Environment Agency registered small boats and are also popular for walking, fishing and even wild swimming.

The ferry office was on the right as you look across the river from Aston according to old photographs but no trace of this remains, not even the plinth on which it sat. The narrow road track however, has been recently finished with Tarmac.
