Henley Standard

April 29, 1966

ONE of the most interesting riverside houses to change hands recently is Conways Bridge, between Henley and Wargrave. The house, which was originally a boathouse, is now one of the most luxurious small establishments in the Home Counties, and it has 63 acres, a lodge and a gardener’s cottage, together with a museum and some 2,000 feet of river frontage. It is understood the estate has changed hands for a sum in excess of £100,000.

Mr Dennis Warren, a 38-year-old married man with three children, who lives at Appletree Cottage, Nettlebed, and who is estate manager to Colonel Peter Fleming, has been awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust fellowship and in October will go to the United States for three months to study American farming methods.

On Sunday morning it was discovered that the cigarette machine outside Sargeant’s Garage, Reading Road, had been broken and the contents taken. A quantity of cigarettes were also stolen on Saturday night from the kiosk at Mill Meadows, the thief gaining access by removing the roof of the kiosk.
