Welcome to the Down Hatherley village history website. The site is managed by Bill Welsh and is intended to describe major events, people, buildings, etc, associated with the village over the centuries.
We receive queries from around Britain and, indeed, the world from people trying to trace ancestors who were born or lived in Down Hatherley. We have access to a churchyard database listing the known graves in the village.
