Several riverside gardens on or near the Thames Path are open this summer as part of the National Gardens Scheme.
Sutton Courtenay Manor, a former grange of Abingdon Abbey and once home of Observer editor David Astor, opens its garden above the water meadows on Sunday afternoon 25 June. A new garden in the grounds of 17th-century Radcot House, just north of Radcot Bridge, will be open afternoons over 2-3 September weekend.
Ewen Manor, the last big residence before the Thames source, is open 11am-4pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays until 29 June.
The garden openings are listed in the 2006 edition of The Yellow Book (Â£7.99) and on www.ngs.org.uk
