Saturday Snapshot: Marlow

D took this photo of Marlow Bridge in Buckinghamshire several years ago. Marlow Bridge crosses the River Thames between Marlow and Bisham in Berkshire. There has been a bridge here since the 14th century, but this suspension bridge was erected in 1829 -1832.

We used to live in Buckinghamshire and often visited Marlow. I took the photo shown below when the grandchildren were younger, playing in Higginson Park.

Marlow is also the home of Sir Steve Redgrave, the Olympic Rowing Champion who won gold medals at five consecutive Olympic Games from 1984 to 2000. His statue stands in Higginson Park – in the background of my photo. For a better photo of his statue see Wikipedia – I was taking a photo of the grandchildren, not Sir Steve’s statue. 🙂

  1. Great photos, interesting that there’s been a bridge there for so long. Nice to see that there’s at least one swan among the ducks.


  2. Oh Margaret,I love your pictures, but they brought back memories, and made me home-sick for the Thames – I was brought up not far away, in Egham, and worked on papers where the areas covered included Marlow and lots of villages alongside the Thames in Bucks, Berks, Surrey, Mddx. I even lived on a houseboat at Windsor for a while! There are no proper rivers in my part of the Midlands. My Snapshot is of a stone circle


  3. Thanks for taking me back to a lovely little town I stayed in during the 80s. I’ve been back a few times since, but not for more than a decade now.


  4. Margaret – What a lovely set of ‘photos! I just love how you’ve caught the light so beautifully in the first one. Gorgeous!
