Boveney Lock is on the River Thames opposite Windsor Racecourse and close to Eton Wick. This lock, built in 1838, is one of the busiest and most attractive on the Thames. Little is known of the origins of the hamlet of Boveney, although we know there was an old fishery here dating back to 1201. A little way upstream is the twelfth-century chapel of St Mary Magdalene, which is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Built of chalk rubble and flint, this little now-disused chapel was built for the bargemen and bargees that plied their trades on the Thames.
From here you can visit Dorney Court, a very special home owned by the Palmer family for more than 450 years passing from father to son through 13 generations. King Henry VIII has stayed here and the manor is regularly used for filming including “Poirot” and most recently “The other Boleyn girl”.
