"The view of Whitchurch shows the Old Mill, and behind, the simple spire of the village church. Pangbourne, on the opposite bank of the river, has a railway station, which makes the twin villages easy of access from London...The reach above Whitchurch is a very beautiful part of the river. The hills on each side are high and richly wooded, and the grounds of Basilden Park especially are very attractive."

Descriptive letterpress from the book 'The Thames Illustrated by Photographs'
