Visit Wallingford and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:

Wallingford, Oxfordshire. Since early times the site of a ford over the Thames, now spanned by a many-arched bridge, which was of supreme importance. Romans probably settled here, and Anglo-Saxons certainly did and it was probably they who fortified the town, traces of the ramparts still being visible today. In 1006 the Danes destroyed Wallingford.

There was once a priory and a great castle here: of the priory made over to Wolsey in 1525 nothing remains, but a little of the castle can still be seen. There was much activity here during the l2th century disorders, but finally the Treaty of Wallingford gave Henry II the throne and in 1155 he gave the town its first charter.

There were also some 14 churches here, but by the 16th century Wallingford had fallen on evil days. However, during the Civil War the castle again assumed importance, the town being the last Royalist stronghold to surrender. But it was finally razed to such effect by Parliamentary forces that only fragments remain in the gardens of Castle House, a private residence occasionally open to the public.

There are many fine Georgian and timber-framed buildings. The Town Hall is 17th century and contains portraits by Gainsborough and others. The White Hart is early l6th century and the George Inn probably 17th century, as are a group of almshouses. The Lamb Hotel is Georgian.

Of the churches St Leonard's, though much restored, is Norman as the herringbone work, the north door and arches east of the nave show: and St Peter's, rebuilt in the 18th century, has a needle-like spire.
