Visit Pangbourne and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Pangbourne, Berkshire. The Pang joins the Thames at Pangbourne and one of the prettiest views is looking over the river and weir to Pangbourne meadow.
Although somewhat developed today, Pangbourne has some pleasant 17th and 18th century houses, and the Nautical College, founded in 1917, is on top of the hill. Bere Court, which once belonged to the abbots of Reading, is early Georgian.
Apart from the l8th century brick tower, the church was rebuilt in the 19th century, but inside are a Jacobean pulpit, and a monument to Sir John Davis in armour, 1625, surrounded by his family, including a daughter-in-law who was sister to Sir John Suckling, the poet. This stretch must encourage writers, for Kenneth Grahame, author of The Wind in the Willows, lived here, and Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat paused at the Swan Inn.
