Village Fete: The earliest paintings of Datchet

Village Fete: The earliest paintings of Datchet

posted in: What's On | 0

As usual, the DVS had a stand at the village fete on Saturday 7 July. This year we were displaying our most recent find: two lovely watercolours of Datchet, painted around 1850-1860. 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. The paintings were on display at this year’s AGM and again at the fete, along with a display explaining what these images reveal about the village.
