Thames Street, Wallingford

Cosy in our mooring downstream!
... and looking upstream at the visitor moorings

A redundant Anglican church since 1971 and is now used for classical/chamber music events during the summer. 
The original church dated back to pre 1320 and the existing St Peter's church was built in 1760-69 with the spire being added in 1776

Walking round the back of the church into Thames Street ...
... where there's a real mixture of houses.
The pillars are an entrance into Castle Priory which was the residence of Sir William Blackstone whose last resting place is within St Peters
I don't think these are very old though
... but these delightful cottages are!
Hollyhocks grow well in this area
Thames Street, Wallingford - shame about the cars though.
(we're still walking in Wallingford in the next post!)
