Excerpt from The Geology of the Country Around Hungerford and Newbury

The natural drainage of this part of the Hungerford district is south-eastward, with the prevailing slope of the ground; the principal stream being the Lambourn, which rises (in years of normal rainfall) at or near Lambourn, and pursues a fairly straight course of some 14 miles down to its junction with the Kennet, below Newbury. The only other brooks of any importance are the Aldbourne, the Winterbourne (a tributary of the Lambourn), and the Pang, which enters and quits the district on the extreme north-east.

The section of the Sydmonton Range constituting the southern upland belt occupies a much smaller proportion of the area under notice than the Berkshire Downs. Its greater altitude, however, and, especially, the boldly-undulate sky-line and strong northward-facing scarp which characterise its eastern end, make it a more striking feature to the observer who is situated in the midst of the district.
