Red Lion, Gold Lion

…and the Angel on the Bridge, Henley on Thames.

The Red Lion Hotel was originally a coaching inn on the road between London and Oxford going back 600 years or so – the Angel on the Bridge is a favourite spot with decking onto the river with swans swimming by. Currently swathed in scaffolding, it is still open for business.

The gold lion is one of many distinctive door knockers found on local historic buildings.
