The Ferryman Inn (1), Bablock Hythe, Oxon
The Ferryman Inn (1), Bablock Hythe, Oxon
A very popular inn which does food, real ale, accommodation and has fishing rights on the river. It is located on a beautiful stretch of the River Thames, adjacent to a holiday park and handy for the nearby Thames Walk, a National Trail footpath. There has been an inn of some sort on this site for a very long time. Latterly it was known as The Chequers. The present rebuilding dates from the 1990's and was first the Ferry Inn but now The Ferryman Inn. The name is from the famous nearby ferry crossing which records show dates back to at least 946 AD. The ferry closed in 1964 but there have been subsequent revivals. It was not running when I took this photograph but I cannot say what the present position is.
