"Two miles above Sandford, the square tower of Iffley Church comes in sight, above the picturesque old mill. This church is considered one of the finest and most perfect specimens of early Norman architecture in the kingdom...
Iffley is the usual starting point for the Oxford boat races, and Folly Bridge their terminus. Some of the college barges, where the crews equip themselves, and from the decks of which their privileged friends have a good view of the races, are seen in their stations against the bank of Christchurch meadows."
