Visit Wargrave and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Wargrave, Berkshire. With its narrow roads, its trees, and riverside houses, Wargrave is a most attractive village with Georgian and timber-framed buildings. Just near here the Thames meets the River Loddon and this particular stretch of river is both charming and relatively quiet, except during summer weekends when the boats are out in full force.
The church, except for the l7th-century tower, was burnt down in 1914 and has been rebuilt. Looking back further, Wargrave has had some interesting inhabitants, among them Thomas Day (1748— 89), who wrote Sandford and Merton, an instructive book about a poor and a rich boy which was once widely read. Day died trying to ride an unbroken horse, attempting to prove his theory that animals are obedient in response to kindness.
