Medmenham

Description of Medmenham from J. J. Sheahan, 1861.

Medmenham

My parents and I came to Buckinghamshire in 1921. On our way we observed four cottages. In large white-washed lettering were the words 'I BE TO LET', on the next cottage 'SO BE I', on the next 'I BAINT' and on the fourth cottage, 'NOR BAIN'T I'. We thought this highly amusing, but as time went on

Medmenham

The picturesque village of Medmenham nestles in the lee of Wooded Hill to the north and is principally a street of brick and flint cottages which straggles from the now discontinued ferry on the river Thames to its junction with the main Henley-Marlow road half a mile away.

Medmenham

Medmenham Parish (Pop. 384) One Daily School, containing 15 males and 15 females, 12 of the latter are educated and clothed at the expense of Mrs. Scott, the rest of the children are paid for by their parents.
