Remenham is a village on the Berkshire bank of the River Thames near Henley-on-Thames, close to the start of the Henley Royal Regatta course in southern England. Remenham Club is a private members club for rowers nearby, with a good view of the river halfway along the course.

The parish church is Norman in origin, but has been rebuilt subsequently. The tower has chequer-work turrets and in the chancel there are some Sienese wrought iron gates.
