More about this scene


Caption for Pangbourne, Whitchurch Lock C1949: The lock is only accessible by water, for it is cut off from Whitchurch by a backwater and house gardens: even the Thames Path misses the river here, only going through the churchyard. This view looks from the lock-keeper's cottage garden eastwards into the lock. The chestnut palings are now a smart well-trimmed beech hedge.

Memories of Pangbourne, Whitchurch Lock c1949

The boat in the photograph was completed in 1949 by my father George Watson. We lived in Palmers Green, London N13.  I am up forward then aged 11.  I think the picture was taken in 1949 as I can remember the occasion well.
