Maidenhead lies on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Thames just west of London. It's a part of the river immortalised by Kenneth Grahame in The Wind in the Willows and in the paintings of Stanley Spencer.
Sally Magnusson sees something of its beauty and meets Evelyn Gaze, whose life in the Salvation Army began with a blessing from General William Booth. Christians from all over Maidenhead meet in St Luke's Church to sing their Songs of Praise.
Songs of praise the angels sang; Travel on; Blest are the pure in heart: Lord with my all I part; Holy city seen of John; Walk in the light; Amazing grace; Now thank we all our God
