Coopers Hill

Cooper's Hill, a sandy elevation rising 142 feet above the Thames on its S. bank, and close to the Berkshire border of the county of Surrey. It commands a fine view over the Thames valley. There since 1870 has been established the Government Civil Engineering College, destined originally to train young men for the public service in India, but now thrown open to all who desire a professional education. The spot was immortalised by Pope and Denham.
