Boars Hill Location Map

“The summit of Boars Hill affords one of those views which are to be seen only in England, a view which extends over a broad expanse of country that is at once well wooded and yet highly cultivated, and which has a special feature in the spires and towers of a classic city set in its centre; such a view, when seen in an evening in late summer, before the corn is gathered in, astonishes the beholder with the revelation of beauty which it presents to the gaze” – G. C. Druce, Flora of Berkshire (1897)
