“THE aim of the town map is in essence to conserve the residential character of Henley

“THE aim of the town map is in essence to conserve the residential character of Henley while providing for some expansion of population, including that due to migration influences. Respect is paid to the inherent character of the town centre and to the pleasant countryside around Henley.” The foregoing is part of the preamble to the written statement accompanying the informal town map of Henley, documents which are now on deposit at the borough council offices and available for public inspection.

The licence of the Red Lion Hotel in Henley changed hands on Tuesday when justices granted a protection order to Richard John Elsden, from Winslow, Bucks. The hotel, which has been owned by David Summersby for the last 11 years, dates back hundreds of years. In 1632 Charles I stayed there on his way from London to Oxford and again in 1642 with Prince Rupert, whose brigade was stationed at Henley.

Two employees of Stuart Turner in Henley retired last weekend after each had completed 40 years’ service with the pump manufacturer. Mr R Mundell, of Reading Road, and Miss M Jakeway, of Grange Road, each received parting gifts from the firm and from their fellow workers.
