Fawley Court, Henley

Fawley Court, Henley. Steel engraving. From Eighty Picturesque Views of the Thames and Medway. "Fawley court, the seat of Mr. Freeman, with its lawns and thick woods, has a noble appearance: the mansion was erected from the designs of Sir Christopher Wren. The river near this place forms the boundary line of the counties of Buckingham and Berks, and, making several bold sweeps, takes a more easterly direction. On approaching Hambleden the reaches increase in length and become wider. Their banks are well wooded and imdulating, and the lock of this place, with its twofold wiers, adds considerably to the beauty of the landscape" (59).
