Sir, — I’ve often puzzled why there is a Lower Assendon and a Middle Assendon but no mention of an Upper Assendon. In fact there is!
This notice is affixed to the side of the first barn on the right as you approach Stonor from Henley.
I wonder if what we now call the village of Stonor was originally Upper Assendon and that only the great house and park were known as Stonor? — Yours faithfully,
Mill Road, Shiplake
