The River Pang is a small river running for almost 14 miles through the county of Berkshire, in England. Flowing from its source near the village of Compton, the river is a tributary of the River Thames
. The Pang is thought to have been the inspiration behind the book ‘The Wind in the Willows’. The River Pang is home to a population of wild brown trout, as well as American signal crayfish and water voles. At Moor Copse
, by the village of Tidmarsh, the river flows through a nature reserve owned and managed by the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust.
