DATCHET, or Datchet St. Helen's, is a parish in the hundred of Stoke, union of Eton, situate on the eastern bank of the Thames, 2 miles E.S.E. of Windsor, with which town it communicates by a neat iron bridge, called the Victoria Bridge. Another bridge below connects Datchet with Old Windsor, and is called the Albert Bridge. There are many handsome villas on the banks of the river, and magnificent views of Windsor Castle, the Royal Park, Eton College, and the course of the Thames, may be obtained from this locality. Shakespeare, in " The Merry Wives of Windsor," has invested this place with peculiar interest; "the muddy ditch at Datchet Mead, close by the Thames side," was where Falstaff was thrown "glowing hot, like a horse shoe, hissing hot" and having "an alacrity in sinking, had been drowned but that the shore was shelvy and shallow." The Thames at Datchet was a favourite resort of Isaak Walton, the chief of English " Piscators," who with his friend," that great undervaluer of money, the late Provost of Eton College. Sir Henry Wotton, a most dear lover and frequent practiser of the art of angling, often plied here the gentle craft. The village is still a noted resort for anglers. Formerly a monastery, dedicated to St. Helen, the walls of which are still to be seen, stood near the present Albert Bridge. Ditton Park, in this parish, is a splendid seat; the mansion was built by Elizabeth, Duchess of Buccleugh, in 1813, on the site of an old manor of the Molinses and Hungerfords, burnt in the previous year. The church is a plain structure, dedicated to St. Mary. The living is a vicarage, in the deanery of Burnham and patronage of the Dean and Canons of Windsor, annual value about 150. There is a chapel for Baptists and a National School. The parish comprises an area of 1630 acres, with a population in 1861 of 982.
