Whitchurch Lock by Mortimer Menpes, R.I.. Watercolor. Source: The Thames, facing 64. “From Pangbourne and Whitchurch to Goring and Streatley, the river lies beneath the chalk heights, which seem to dip underground, reappearing on the other side by Streatley; and the whole of the stretch, with its rich and varied woods, its delightful islands and weirs, its pretty cottages and churches, is full of charm” (12).
