Henley On Thames Through Time

Availability: Out of stock

Author: Elizabeth Hazeldine

Nestled in a valley and surrounded by stunning countryside, Henley-on-Thames is a small market town in the heart of Oxfordshire. Henley’s population is very much connected to its past and has many long-established local families, but new arrivals have further added to its diversity. Thanks to Henley’s proximity to the Thames, the town thrived through its trade links, conveying goods by barge. Henley also had a rich brewing legacy, with breweries such as Greys Brewery, Ives Brothers and W. H. Brakspear & Sons providing employment to the local populace.

Henley-on-Thames’ historic links are most evident through its large number of impressive listed buildings. The Chantry House, a fine, timber-framed structure that stands in a corner of St Mary’s churchyard, is itemised in documentation from the 1460s. The Bell hostelry has been identified as the town’s oldest structure. While much has changed in this riverside town, Henley-on-Thames Through Time celebrates both the old and new as the reader is taken on a journey through Henley’s spectacular heritage.
