LOCATION
Goring Heath, lying a few miles east of Goring on Thames, is a scattered, rural Parish extending from the South Western edge of Woodcote, skirting round Whitchurch Hill and then South towards Mapledurham with the A329 Reading to Wallingford Road forming the perimeter along its eastern boundary. In the centre of the Parish are located the Alms houses built in a most pleasing aesthetic period architectural style, founded in 1726 by Henry Alnutt, a wealthy London barrister, and together with their historic Chapel are arranged around three sides of a cobbled courtyard. Whilst modernised in recent years, the Buildings have retained their authentic character appearance largely as they were in the 18th century, as has their unspoilt rural setting.


The nearby village of Pangbourne on Thames lies on a bend of the River where it meets the River Pang and is connected by an ancient Toll Bridge to the village of Whitchurch in Oxfordshire, which nestles under the Chilterns Escarpment. The surrounding countryside of the Berkshire Downlands and Chiltern Hills is designated an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’.


Pangbourne has an excellent range of local amenities, shops and facilities, including a supermarket, WH Smith, a Bank, Library, an impressive architect-designed Health Centre, Dentist, Opticians, together with Traditional Inns, Restaurants and Hotels including the newly refurbished The Elephant formerly The Copper Inn.  There is also a mainline station providing fast commuter services to Reading (8 minutes) and up to Paddington (25 minutes).


The village of Woodcote is within easy walking distance with access to local shops, health centre and Post Office. Goring on Thames is but a short drive, offering established shopping centres and a range of facilities including bank, modern health centres as well as restaurants, hotels and olde worlde inns. In addition there are mainline train services from Goring & Streatley station to both Oxford and London.
