We visit here every once and a while. It’s nice here. Either for educational reasons, for a cuppa or for a lovely walk like we do. Peaceful. Relaxing. Worth a visit. You may even see a seal.

We came here to go to a christening to the 800 year old church which you will see as you drive to the car park , we decided to take a walk around the area and it’s absolutely stunning right along the river Thames .
