The men pass by Marlow and Bisham Abbey, where many important historical figures are buried. Je describes it as "one of the pleasantest river centres I know of." He says it is a small town and not picturesque in the classical sense. It has many "quaint" nooks and corners to discover. There is a strong sense of history to the town, 

back to the days when Marlow Manor owned Saxon Algar for its lord, ere conquering William seized it to give to Queen Matilda, ere it passed to the Earls of Warwick or to worldly-wise Lord Paget, the councillor of four successive sovereigns.
