    Henley-on-Thames – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Henley Hobbs
      The Hobbs family are a part of Henley history. They have been running wharfs on the Thames since 1621, they formalised Hobbs & Sons river craft in the 1870s and are still going today. W.A. Hobbs held the post of Mayor at the outbreak of WWI, despite being in his fifties he quit office and enlisted. During his life he also took charge of the voluntary fire brigade, helped found the Memorial Hospital and brought a good deal of business to the town. After WWII boat wars broke out as different boating companies competed for trade, including different members of the Hobbs family who set up rival firms.
    2. The Regatta
      Henley is best known for the Henley Royal Regatta. Arguably the most famous regatta in the world, it is certainly the most dramatic with over 300 rowing races (two boats per race), spectators in traditional attire of straw boaters or Panama hats. In fact, it is considered more of a social event than a sporting one with fine attire, jazz bands, strawberries, champagne and somewhere among the good times, up to 90 races a day paddle the 1 mile, 555 yard course.
    3. A Bit Stuffy
      Dress codes at the regatta’s Steward’s Enclosure are certainly a bit stuff. Ladies are not permitted to wear trousers and men must wear ties and hats. At the 1976 regatta temperatures reached a blistering 92°F and men were actually allowed to remove their jackets (but of course not their ties).
    4. Mr Grimsdale!
      Legendary comedian Sir Norman Wisdom once applied for a job in a pub in Henley but was told he was too small. Wisdom who was homeless at the time went on to join the army where he found a talent for making his comrades laugh. After leaving the army he went on to become the biggest star of the day, his movies outsold James Bond flicks and even A Hard Days Night featuring The Beatles. So, Henley’s loss was comedy’s gain.
    5. On The Market
      The weekly market dates back to 1269 when a charter was granted by King John. Today there are also monthly craft markets and a popular farmers market.
    6. Un-Civil
      Henley was considered a potentially important location in during the English Civil War. King Charles II had left London which became the parliamentarian seat of power while he set up his new capital in Oxford. Sir James Harrington, the Parliamentary commander recommended fortifying the town ‘in order to hinder the great [river] trade … between Oxford and London, as also for the well-being of Reading and Abingdon…”. Parliamentary forces held Reading and Abingdon while both sides used the river to transport goods and supplies on the river. The town stayed largely neutral to appease the bands of poorly paid troops of both forces who regularly passed through Henley, stealing as they went.
