"East Sheen is the perfect haven at the end of an easy commute into London. With stunning Richmond Park on your doorstep it is a green haven for walkers, runners and strollers. A vibrant mix of delis and independent shops gives it a truly village feel."

"In 1987 and following the first defeat for their team in 1 1 years, Oxford vowed to gain revenge and recruited a number of American international class, postgraduate rowers. Sadly they all fell out resulting in the "Oxford Mutiny" forcing the selectors to drop all of them in favour of the reserve crew, who then went on to win by four lengths."
