Honey Pot Cottage At Wraysbury - a Memory of Wraysbury.

My aunt, Beryl Reid, moved into Honey Pot Cottage in Wraysbury in the late 1950s and we spent many happy days visiting her. The river was fascinating and there was a houseboat on the other side of the river that seemed to be there for years and years. She had a lovely curved stone seat at the bottom of the garden where I used to sit and let the water lap my feet and the ducks used to come up into the garden every day to be fed. As time went on Honey Pot Cottage because heavily populated with cats and they had the greatest time running up and down trees and hiding in the thatch. Unfortunately those days are long gone.

I have just moved into the old boat shop where the ferry was launched from in 1890 until it became out dated by concrete bridges & roads My brother now owns this historic Thames river crossing including the river bank opposite the original ferry crossing
