Village Fete: The earliest paintings of Datchet

Village Fete: The earliest paintings of Datchet

posted in: What's On | 0

The DVS had a stand at the village fete on Saturday 7 July. This year we were exhibiting our most recent find: two lovely watercolours of Datchet, painted around 1850-1860, along with a display explaining what these images reveal about the village. If you weren’t able to come along to see them, we’ve included photographs below – please click on each image for a larger version. They are not signed or dated but are the earliest pictures of the village yet known. Both paintings have now been bought by the DVS and The Barker Bridge House Trust, restored and framed.
