The Trout part way along the road from Bampton to Buckland is a very popular eating place. It is on the Thames and many fishermen and women have the right to have a rod there and they go to the pub, eat and fish. A cycle path would have been a wonderful addition to safe riding and these pictures are taken from scanned black and white negatives.

  • Jo Lewington
  • Dr Matthew Perry & wife Carole
  • Freda Bradley
  • Bishop Paul Burroughs
