Description: View of Thames Valley, from the 'Look Out', Coopers Hill. Looking NNW. General view across the Thames Valley. In the foreground the river-cliff of London Clay, with small landslips, descends to the broad alluvial tract of Runnymede. In the centre of the picture is Magna Charta Island; beyond the river are the broad plains of river gravel stretching towards Slough; on a clear day the Chiltern Hills would be visible on the skyline. On the left, Windsor Castle is just visible on the skyline. The foreground to the river is part of Surrey; beyond the river is Buckinghamshire, while Windsor is in Berkshire.
