Eton Dorney Centre

Started in 1972 to provide holidays for underprivileged children run by Dorney Parish, Eton College and The Diocese of Oxford.

The Centre closed in 2016.

Colin & Rosemary Morton were Wardens from 1990 to 1998 and have set up a website to record the history of the Centre and preserve the many memories. The site, currently, is:

 

 http://www.etondorney.org.uk

 

However, they will, at some time in the future, be closing that site and have asked that the Dorney History Group site host the history and memories of the Eton Dorney Project, which we are very happy to do.

 

We are still working on the best way to transfer the Eton Dorney website to this website, without losing the pictures etc.

 

So, in order to start us off, we have transferred pages on the original website to a PDF file, which are below. It doesn't show the current web pages at their best - but it does preserve the record.
