The River

The Thames down from Staines bridge is one of the most historically interesting stretches of the river, reaching back to Roman times when it was a small port (or ‘hythe’). It has had a colourful history since then.
Today it is flanked by the Staines Conservation Area on its northern bank and the Egham Hythe Conservation Area on the other side.
Today the river is a source of enjoyment and entertainment for both
residents and those passing through on leisure craft.
