WORK now proceeding in the vicinity of the cross in connection with Henley’s new traffic scheme was the subject of comment at Tuesday’s town council meeting. Winding up the debate, the Mayor, Coun R L Sadler, said traffic was a modern problem affecting Henley which had to be remedied by experts, in this case the county surveyor and the Ministry of Transport.

Two Alsatian dogs kept at a Bix pub as protection after two burglaries got away from the premises in early February and killed a ram, injured another so badly that it had to be put down and later killed 15 chickens valued at 15s each. George H Mowbray, of the Fox Inn at Bix, pleaded not guilty to being the owner of the dogs and four complaints of keeping two dangerous dogs not under proper control at Henley Magistrates’ Court. He was found guilty and fined £5 for the ram and poultry incidents and ordered to pay costs of £17 5s 6d.

Only the most observant viewers of the television programme BBC3 on Saturday evening would have noticed that scenes in the film were shot in the Henley area. The boy going up the drive to his “London” school was in fact going along the drive next to Simmons & Sons in Bell Street. Much of the rest of the film was shot at Stonor Park.
