Datchet Village Society holds a very large archive of photos which was created and managed by Rob Gordon until recently but is now updated and managed by Adrian Giddins. Many of the photos were taken by Rob, including full coverage or photo-stories of village events, and he also scanned and stored earlier pictures of Datchet which remain in private ownership. There is no general access to the archive but small selections of photos on a variety of topics will be posted here, while anyone looking for particular images is welcome to ask Adrian if relevant photos exist in the archive.


Please click on the images or headings below to see photographs from the archive. We’ll be adding more images over the coming months.
