Ride Out to Little Marlow

and a great lunch at the Queen’s Head.

Let me share a lovely experience I had on a chilly yet sunny day in January.

I headed out to Uxbridge to get my CB125F cleaned and then onto Little Marlow, a charming village I discovered during my research for places to visit and showcase in 2024.

Intrigued to try out a new way of shooting and recording audio, I decided to take a ride to Little Marlow, and I am so glad that I did because it was an amazing experience.

The village is a little gem, and everyone there is incredibly proud of it.

It has two fantastic pubs, the Queen’s Head and the King’s Head, which are worth a visit.

Since I prefer to travel via A roads in my PhotoMoto videos, I took the southern route via Burnham as I was in Uxbridge getting the bike cleaned.

On my way back, I took the Google Maps preferred route via Denham & Beaconsfield, which I plan to use again when I return in Spring.

When I arrived, I felt a bit hungry, so I stopped for lunch at the Queen’s Head.

I judge a pub based on how quickly I feel at home, and I have to say, the initial unease I feel upon entering many pubs quickly dissipated.

I was greeted warmly and ordered, what was, a delicious cappuccino.

The specials board had me drooling over its offerings, and I ended up ordering a mouth-watering steak sandwich.

As you’ll see in the video, the sun quickly shifted away from the photographic targets I had in mind, which included the red phone box, church, and Queens Head Pub, but that didn’t dampen my spirits.

I plan to return in February after the snow has come and gone.

I can’t wait to capture the beauty of the village on film, including its lake, the Thames, both pubs and many other wonderful things.

I took two stunning shots of the church with the sun peeking from behind, and I will post the images here once I’ve developed the roll of 120.

The lady behind the bar and a chap I met in the restroom, stop giggling at the back, provided me with a lot of information and inspiration to revisit and capture this gorgeous village on film.

That’s it for now.
