The Swan Inn at Radcot

The hamlet that is Radcot is about four miles to the north of Faringdon. Historically it was an important crossing point of the River Thames and consequently numerous battles have been fought over it. It's likely that a public house has stood there for centuries, if not millenia. The pleasant hostelry there today is the Swan Hotel and this listing has been put together to explain what we know and can confirm so far of it's existence and the landlords who have operated it. We thank Alan Watkins, the current Landlord for his enthusiasm and assistance.
