"The pretty church of Clifton Hampden is picturesquely situated on a high bank, at a turn of the river. It may be called a new building, for only the foundation and a small portion of the walls of the old church have been preserved. The architect was Mr. Gilbert Scott. The church is worth a visit, both for its own sake, being a very graceful structure, and for the extensive view to be obtained from its tower, whence, in the distance, the clustering spires of Oxford may be seen. For the rebuilding of the church, as well as for the construction of a new bridge and other improvements, the village is, we understand, indebted to Mr. Gibbs, the squire of the parish.
