Welcome to Sacred Heart Parish, Henley
Henley-on-Thames, population around 15,000 and home of the Royal Regatta, is situated on the north bank of the River Thames in the extreme southern portion
of Oxfordshire (Henley comes under the Birmingham Diocese). Parts of both
Berkshire (Portsmouth Diocese) & Buckinghamshire (Northampton Diocese) touch
on the town's boundaries. Henley is approximately 35 miles from London (with Birmingham approximately three times as far). The town figures as a dormitory
suburb and weekend retreat area as well as an inland resort, before considering
more local aspects of community life in the area.
