The Memorial Hall in Purley on Thames is close to the River Thames and provides panoramic views over the Thames Valley, South Oxfordshire and Mapledurham; an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The hall was built as a memorial to those people who lost their lives in the first and second world wars; to provide affordable space for the residents of the village and local areas to use as they so wish. The money to build the hall was raised by the villagers.
