STREATLEY is an exceedingly pretty village, delightfully situate in a valley
on the Thames, 6 miles S. of Wallingford, and 10 N.W. from Reading, in the
hundred of Ock, and union of Bradfield. Its name is supposed to have
originated from its situation on the ancient Icknield Street; some imagine
it to have been the ancient Calliva, an opinion which is supported by its
position, and by the number of Roman remains constantly found here. The
Thames is here crossed by a double bridge, connecting Streatley with Goring
in Oxfordshire, where there is a station on the Great Western Railway. The
church is an ancient structure, dedicated to St. John the Baptist,
consisting of chancel, nave, and square flint tower, containing six bells.
The living, value £260 yearly, is a vicarage, in the patronage of the Bishop
of Oxford, and deanery of Wallingford; the Rev. John Slatter is incumbent.
There is a small Parochial School, supported by voluntary contributions; two
other schools are situate in the hamlets of Westridge and Southridge, in
this parish. The scenery around the village is extremely beautiful and
romantic. On the banks of the Thames are several handsome residences, which,
from their elevated position, have a very pleasant appearance. The resident
poor are entitled to several minor charities, and there is a small endowment
for the repair of the church. Area of the parish, 1500 acres; population in
