    We have published two detailed maps of Henley. Though the North map is perhaps the most important, as it covers the town centre, the two maps are intended as a pair and link up neatly with each other to provide good coverage of this riverside town, famous for its Henley Regatta.

    The Henley North map covers the town centre. Coverage stretches from Friar Park and Rotherfield Court eastward to Remenham Wood, and from the railway terminus northward to Swiss Farm, Badgemore Farm and Remenham Lodge. Features include the town centre, Henley Bridge, Duke Street, Hart Street, New Street, Friday Street, Market Place, Town Hall, Bell Street, Phillis Court, brewery, Thames Side, West Hill, Gravel Hill, Westfield House, Windmill Cottage, workhouse, all shown in some detail. The Thames runs north-south through the map and on the east, Berkshire side are Bird Place, Thamesfield and a few other houses. On the reverse we include the first part of a commercial directory, A-S, along with Barrie Trinder's comprehensive introduction to the history of the town.

    The Henley South map continues coverage south, covering an area from St Mark's Road and Reading Road southward to Harpsden Court. Part of Harpsden village is in the lower part of the map, including St Margaret's church, Harpsdencourt Farm, Harpsden Hall. Other features on the map include Harpsden Heights, Drawback Hill, Coldharbour Farm, Newtown, Sheephouse Farm, Marsh Mill. On the reverse is the continuation of the commercial directory plus a list of private residents of Henley from a Directory of 1899; a directory for Harpsden; information about a Mayor of Henley, Alderman C Clements; and a GWR railway timetable for the Henley branch in 1906. Another essay from Barrie Trinder completes an important pair of maps, providing a very good historical overview of Henley-on-Thames.
