Caps Lane


Caps lane is one of the older roads of Cholsey and the original way you would have gone to Wallingford before they built the new road. I have part from the Wallinford Road end, this week I will show it to you from the Reading Road side

We start here which I did show last week, this was the old entrance to Caps Lane from the Toll Road
From there you just follow the road past some cottages and stables 
You will come to a series of bends a little further along
which comes out nearer houses and the entrance to the Mill
Over to the left of the road near here there used to be a track that linked up with Ilgies Lane, it is shown on very old maps but went into decline around when the enclosures act came into being 
It most likely went across the road to take people along here to the water mill that is along here. There was around three in the village but this one is the only one that remains. Might add it is privately owned and I have never seen it
Walk on along here 
You pass this cottage along the way which is called Field Cottage
A little past the cottage if you look back you can see you have gone downhill
Looking on you see another bend
Where you walk past Blackhalls Barn which has been converted into a house now
That it, a little further and you turn right towards the Wallingford road. This part is new but I thing some of it was farm track once as was part of the lane I just walked. Behind me is the Track I took up along a few weeks ago. I will show what has changed since then next week

  2. Everything is beginning to look very green. I like that cottage.

    1. Yes it all turning green very quickly now. I always think its an odd place for a cottage

  3. I'm impressed with your knowledge of where you live.

    1. Lived here a long time, plus I remember a lot

  4. Such a beautiful village for strolling!
    Thank you for sharing at

  5. Thanks for taking us along on a walk, Billy. It looks like the trees are budding and seeing that green is nice because it will be awhile here to see that in NH.

    1. I would not think it would be that long before it turns green

  6. Thanks for taking us along on your trip, again! I really enjoy the bits of history as we travel along.
