Howbery Park


Back in Aug 1968 I started my apprenticeship at a place called Hydraulics Research Station which was at Howbery Park in Crowmash near Wallingford. The house was built by William Blackstone in 1850. This building was the first place I was taken to sign my Deeds and to sort things out at personnel before being taken to the workshop I would spend the next year.

 This photo was taken before the start of the Thames run.

  4. Very nice. We have old schools in Australia, that look similar to this.

    Is the roof missing on the building on the right?
