old OS map

Dating back to early 18th century these premises were listed in the 1844 White's Directory with carriers operating from the inn to Henley.

The original Congregational chapel shown was later to become the Grimwade Hall, now part of a residential development fronting the junction between Fore & Back Hamlets - all other property depicted apart from Steam Packet pub has since been demolished.

The Ship Inn was demolished after closure and the road has since been widened. Part of the site is now under the car park in front of current St Clements congregational chapel (on the opposite side of the road to the original one as shown on map below).
