Datchet is an English Thameside village and civil parish situated in the unitary authority of Windsor and Maidenhead in the county of Berkshire. It was transferred to Berkshire from Buckinghamshire in 1974.

The village developed particularly because of its close proximity to Windsor and the ferry service which connected the main London road to Windsor across the River Thames. The service was eventually replaced with numerous bridges across the river.[1]

The name “Datchet” is thought to be Celtic in origin, and the last part may be related to cet (meaning wood). In the Domesday Book it was called “Daceta”.
