Worrall Thompson to sell Shiplake cottages

Antony Worrall Thompson is leaving historic Rivermead Cottages in Shiplake near Henley.

The celebrity chef has put the early 19th-century long building in Mill Lane up for sale and is moving to a larger property nearby. The row of cottages, built for workers at Shiplake Mill, was purchased by his grandfather and gradually turned into a single home during the last century. Antony grew up there and recently has been growing fruit and vegetables and raising pigs in the waterside garden which is known to flood.

At Shiplake Mill neither the towpath nor the Thames Path run through gardens. Instead the national trail follows fields between the main village street and the mill.
