we did a few geocaches in Sonning yesterday.  one revealed that Dick Turpin’s Aunt lived in this house, and back in its day it had a secret underground horse stable for black bess to pop down in to whilst mr turpin popped in the front door, and later escaped out the backdoor, across the thames bridge and lie low in Oxfordshire.
