Quote of the day No 135

Thursday 20 June 2019

Half a mile or so from Park Place, and we arrive in sight of HENLEY BRIDGE, a graceful structure of five arches, erected in 1787, and which will be interesting to Art-lovers as containing two sculptured works— MASKs OF THE THAMES AND Isis—from the chisel of the Hon. Mrs. Darner they decorate the consoles of the central arch, exhibit talent of no common order, and are interesting as examples of that genius which adopted the most difficult of all the arts as the occupation and enjoyment of rank and wealth. This is not the only memory preserved at Henley. It was here that Shenstone wrote the familiar lines on an inn :—

“Wboe’er has travelled life’s dull round,
Where’er his stages may have been,
May sigh to think he stil as found
The warmest welcome at an Inn.”

The inn—the Red Lion—is still there, but it has been long unoccupied.

Mr and Mrs S. C. Hall The Book of the Thames 1859
