|Watercress beds (not taken at this location)|| |
The area today
The river here is fast flowing and gave ideal
conditions for water cress to grow, providing a livelihood for the watercress picker. There is certainly reference to this occupation in the archives but
where the watercress beds actually were is not clear but people remember that there were watercress beds by the Falcon, near where the children's recreation ground is today.
Other beds could be found at Wycombe Marsh.
