SUNNYMEADS Wraysbury’s second station is at Sunnymeads, on the boundary between Wraysbury and Horton, which is a rural village with a green, one shop and two pubs, both listed. It has proud historical connections with John Milton, who wrote some of his poems here, and with the Bowes-Lyon family. The local forge built the equestrian statue of George III, known as the Copper Horse, which stands on Snow Hill in Windsor Great Park. The snag is that the village lies directly in the line of most flights approaching Heathrow airport. The mix of properties ranges from a handful of listed houses to ex-council semis. A two-bedroom apartment in Old Mill Place, Wraysbury, with views of the River Colne can be had for £240,000. Bell’s Lane is a leafy haven where a five-bedroom detached house would sell at around £635,000.
