Local Swan Upping Home

In 1991, on holiday in Wargrave near Henley-on-Thames, we came upon the historic annual Swan Upping. Members of the Dyers and Vintners,  Livery Companies of The City of London, row the length of the Thames, recording the swans and weighing and 'ringing' the cygnets, all of which are the property of The Crown.
