Aldermaston Parish Hall, The Street, Aldermaston, Reading, Berkshire, , RG7 4LW, Berkshire

 Aldermaston brings back some interesting memories. Many years ago when I was at university at Redding, I played in a folk band that put on a Burns night Scottish ceilidh for the research centre in Aldermaston. A must have been over 300 people at the event (which wasn't at this venue, but I can't remember where it was exactly, university days are quite a long way off from me!). I do remember that there were three dance teams who arrived by coach to give demonstration dancing before the general dancing began. It was all very proper and traditional Scottish. However, most the rest of the dancers couldn't do the complex dances the teams were doing, and I do remember when we moved on to the more straightforward dances that everybody can enjoy, two of the teams got annoyed and went home. All very petty I thought. Members of the other team took it all in good spirit enjoyed joining in with the rest of the dancing. It was these people who were getting into the real spirit of a true Scottish ceilidh, where it isn't about being clever and up yourself, it's about everybody having a good time, no matter whether their expert dancers or complete novices, with their young or old. The true and genuine Scottish tradition is to be all-inclusive, and this is the way that our ceilidh and barn dance band treat an event.

 A largely Victorian town which owes everything ro its great royal castle. Near the hill on which it is built were once sited a fortress used by the ancient Britons and by Julius Caesar, and a palace used bv Saxon kings. The castle, founded bv William the Conqueror, first became a royal residence in the reign of Henry I, and incorporates additions dating Irom that time to the -reign oi Queen Victoria. Much of the castle visible from the river was built after 1824. The Lower Yard contains St George's Chapel, the finest example of Perpendicular architecture in England. It owes much to Edward IV and Henry VIII.

 'Maydenhythe', or the medieval 'maidens' landing place', is a large 'dormitory' suburb of London, but is a good centre

for exploring the nearby countryside. The balustraded road bridge and Brunei's railway bridge, with its long brickwork spans and resounding echoes, are among the finest bridges on the river. Boulter's Lock, just upstream, has been a famous riverside spot since Edwardian days. Ray Mill Island is a public garden, and the mill is now a hotel.

  this venue, a major wedding venue in the area, has had a whole number of spellings of the name over the centuries since it was first mentioned in 1376. I guess in the days before spell checkers, spelling was less important than it is now, and indeed William Shakespeare spelt the same word in different ways within the same play, on a regular basis.'s been involved in the wedding was in some way for a long time, as in 5094 it became a part of the marriage settlement between Francis Inglefield and the sister of Viscount Montague. So once again, because of the period of the house, music particularly live music, would have been an integral part of the life of this occupants.

The Field House10 Sutton Close, Cookham , SL6 9QU, Berkshire

 A village of red-brick cottages facing a green. The painter Stanley Spencer (1891-1959). lived at Cookham; his painting of The Last Supper hangs in the church, which is partly 12th century, and other works by Spencer are displayed in King's Hall. Below Cookham Bridge are attractive backwaters with boat-houses, one of which is the office of the Keeper of the Royal Swans. Formosa Island is the largest island on the river, 50 acres of green woodlands concealing the remains of an iSth-century house.

One of the finest stretches of the Thames starts at Cookham Lock and runs downstream past Cliveden. Cliveden House was built by Barry in 1851. Once owned by the Astors, it was a meeting-place of politicians and international celebrities, the so-called 'Cliveden Set', before the Second World War.
