Notes on Church:
Datchet was transferred from Bucks to Berks in 1974. The church was rebuilt in 1857 by the architect Raphael Brandon, with a Nave and two Aisles. More...
In 1857 extensions were built each side of the Chancel, and in 1864, the Western end was extended, and an outer N Aisle was added. The church had been connected with St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle since 1350.

Introduction to Stained Glass:In 1861, soon after the rebuilding, the Prince Consort (Prince Albert) died and Datchet church fitted 4 windows in memory of him (01, 06, 13, 19). More...
They were all made by O'Connor, as were another 6 in the church. Another 8 were made by Lavers & Barraud. The new church had inspired local people to fill the windows with glass in memory of members of their families. Datchet church therefore has a splendid collection of stained glass from the 1860s, whose style in rich colours is now more appreciated than it was through much of the 20th century. We show 19 windows.
