The Old Swan Uppers

A welcome stop on the Thames Path.

This pub is located in Cookham on the River Thames, not far from London. It makes a good place to relax and recharge if you’re walking a section of the Thames Path. It was particularly welcome on the day we stopped, as the weather turned from threatening to rain to bucketing down with rain! (Curious about what a ‘swan upper’ is? Read more here.)

Posted for Becky’s SquareUp challenge. I’ve gone with “playing around with the word up”.

  1. Nice image, and a nice looking pub. Pre-COVID I’d visit the UK on business. Hopefully travel will be easier soon, and grab a pint there.

  2. That is a very inviting picture! You’ve got me wanting a pint now.

    I guess you know the artist Stanley Spencer was from Cookham? He painted it often over a period of many years, including a well-known painting of swan upping that he completed in 1919.

  3. That is exactly what a pub should look like in the eyes of us Americans! It really is lovely and being inside on a rainy day sounds wonderful. A good image for winter.
