About 8 miles north-west of Reading are two villages which straddle the Thames and the boundary between two counties. Goring, the larger of the two, is in Oxfordshire whilst across the bridge is Streatley in Berkshire.  There are some excellent pubs in the area, including "The Miller of Mansfield" in Goring and the "Swan" in Streatley, but many Thames-side pubs in the area have, in my opinion, been spoiled by turning themselves into pretentious restaurants, ruining their atmosphere and serving horrible lager instead of a decent pint - but perhaps this is not the place to moan about that !!

If you would like to buy a reproduction of any of our postcards of Goring, please visit our Zazzle Store. For your convenience, we have included a letter "Z" in the caption beneath those postcards for which Zazzle products using the image are available.
