And so to Goring

 After George returned from the dentist after a repair to a broken tooth we set off from Wallingford in the drizzle

Even in the rain the views of the distant Chilterns are spectacular

Arriving in the historic village of Goring
 ... with it’s huge weir controlling the river flow ...
 ... and very pretty boat houses - I love this one!
 The village of Goring has some rather handsome ...
.... buildings, some dating from the 11th century

St Thomas of Canterbury Church appears to be a real mix of juxtaposition  of buildings (in my opinion).  A Norman tower, a curved Apse and what looks like some sort of fortification too.

 Although I thought the interior was also unusual I did like the alter area.

 We thoroughly enjoyed our walk round Goring turning onto a narrow footpath back to the River Thames and Still Rockin’.
