1880 Village Tour

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.
