A selection of photographs from the database have been organised into slide shows for each area of the village, in date order. Click on the buttons below to go straight to them or just browse down the page. Each slide show has an associated index which shows a little more detail about the photographs, including how to find the full entry in the database via the Explore page.
These photographs of the village are amongst the earliest that we have, and all date from around 1880. This is very early in the history of landscape photography, and we are lucky to have such a remarkable record of the Victorian village. We think they were probably a set taken or commissioned by the vicar at the time, and then handed down from one vicar to the next. They seem to show a great love of the village with the church at the centre of the community. We have arranged them to give the impression of a tour, from above the Church past the Vicarage and Gables House (where we see the Church Sexton with his family), down to the pond, then looking back from Limbrey Hill and finally the Weston Road cottages. The database entry id number (which can be viewed from the Explore page) is shown at the top right of each picture. For more detail on the history of the pictures see Entry 719.
