Streatley

Streatley lies right on the river and offers beautiful walks along its banks. There also is the annual Goring and Streatley Regatta, held each July on the Streatley side of the river.

A Torchlight Procession of villagers and visitors merges with another stream from Goring each Christmas Eve, in an attractive night-time spectacle which continues onto Streatley Recreation Ground where celebrations continue with an annual Carol Singing Service.

The original St Mary’s church within the village dates from 1220 and worth a visit.

The two villages of Goring and Streatley are connected by a bridge, with its adjacent lock and weir, and are often considered as a single settlement.

Interesting Tidbits

The whole of Streatley used to be owned by the Morrell family of brewers from Oxford, whose resistance to change enabled the village to withstand the introduction of a train line and extra houses, both of which were designated for neighbour Goring.

Surrounding Area

Of course a short trip across the bridge over the Thames to Goring is well worthwhile, but the village is also surrounded by a vast National Trust area: Lardon Chase, the Holies and Lough Down, forming one of the largest remaining areas of chalk grassland in the county and supporting a wide range of flowers and butterflies.

Other towns nearby include Pangbourne with its rich history and links to Kenneth Grahame, author of The Wind in the Willows.
