Jubilee River & Taplow
Taplow, Bucks. Thu 21 Aug 2014
A rather nice house from 1893 - and next to the pub, opposite the church
Some older houses - perhaps using old ship's timbers
The pub, the Oak & Saw. The local Lord used to buy up old wooden ships and tow the up the Thames to break up
The home of artist Sheila Horton and her husband (also an artist) Brian Horton.
A detail of the gates painted by Shiela Horton
The blue plaque is for Walter de la Mare who lived in Hill House from 1925-39
The footpath down to the Jubilee River
The Jubilee River
A paper mill on Mill Road
A fairly well-hidden gas storage facility
The white building past the terrace of houses was the once notorious Skindles Hotel
The Thames Path goes under an arch of Maidenhead Road Bridge, which takes the Bath Road (A4) over the Thames
Pevsner describes it as "a beautiful piece of 1772–7" and it is Grade I listed. Now the M4 takes most of the traffic
Red Roofs at Oldfields is apparently now a rather quirky and expensive B&B
