Shawford sits on the other side of the river from Twyford and is probably best known today for being the spot chosen to film where Victor Meldrew - the grumpy old man from the television series One Foot in the Grave - was hit by a car and died. There are pleasant walks here along the river or up onto Shawford Down.
