Cheese Wharf and sign, near Buscot
Cheese Wharf and sign, near Buscot
Today this is a quiet spot by the River Thames, with a small car park, and a pleasant spot to have a picnic and look at the river. It is owned by the National Trust. In the 19th century it was a busy place, with long gone warehouses, although the wharf itself is still in water. In 1813 William Fordyce Major wrote:- "From the wharf at Buscot, belonging to Mr. Loveden, on which warehouses are built for the reception of cheese, and rented by the cheese-mongers in London, not less than between two and three thousand tons of cheese are annually sent down the Thames".
