In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Woodley like this:
Woodley and Sandford, township, Sonning par., Berks, on river Thames, 2 miles E. of Reading, 3690 ac., pop. 1112; contains Woodley, eccl. dist., pop. 665; P.O. at Woodley Green.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Woodley has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Wokingham. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Woodley and units named after it.
