IF you take a walk along the public footpath next to the Thames into Sonning from the Wargrave direction, you will spot some curiosities on either side.
Mounted above the river bank as it curves towards the old bridge is a large U-shaped sculpture that appears to have been formed from an old railway line.
The inscription says: “Bent by the power of the mind by the Ehrlich brothers. Inspired by Uri Geller 09.2012.”
An engraved plate fixed to the bottom states that it was donated to the village of Sonning.
The presentation was reported in the Henley Standard at time but Mr Geller has since left Sonning to return to his native Israel, as I reported only two weeks ago.
On the other side of the footpath is a sign that reads: “This a private sign. Please do not read.” A couple of years ago we reported on a post box being affixed to Sonning Bridge so it was only accessible by boat.
Clearly the inhabitants of Sonning have a well developed sense of humour.
