Little Wittenham is a hamlet at the foot of two Sinodun Hills, better known as Wittenham Clumps. It has no school or shop.

Over looking the river Thames at Little Wittenham is the site of an Iron Age hill fort.

Celtic, Roman and Saxon graves and artifacts have been found here. An Iron Age sword in a decorated bronze scabbard was found near Days Lock in 1982.

Pooh moored his boat and climbed up to the top of Wittenham Clump to have a look at the view.

The bridge in the foreground is where the annual World Pooh Sticks Championship is held. Competitors drop their stick into the water on one side of the bridge and rush to see whose is the first to come out the other side, just as Winnie-the-Pooh did in A. A. Milne’s book.
