At the bottom of the hill is the separate village of Whitchurch on Thames lying opposite to the village of Pangbourne on the Berkshire side of the river. Pangbourne offers excellent shopping facilities as well as a wide range of amenities including a mainline railway station which has excellent commuter services to Reading and up to London (Paddington) in under the hour. There is a regular daily bus service to Reading via Pangbourne from Woodcote with good road communications, particularly for Reading and the M4 motorway.

The area is well served by both state and public schools with notably Whitchurch Primary School which boasts excellent Ofsted reports, and with the Oratory Prep and Secondary Schools located nearby.
