Welcome To The Rodbourne Community History Group

We are committed to recording the rich history of this special community of Rodbourne and making it available to everyone.  We are not just about the bricks and mortar, but the people who lived in and made Rodbourne the flourishing community it is today.

We’ve collected photographs, plans and memories and hope to make them all available through this site.  This is a slow and complicated process which relies heavily on the work of volunteer members so we hope you will bear with us while we try to get it right.

Want to comment, ask a question or find an old friend?  Please do!  Use our Contact Us page. Better still why not post one of your memories of Rodbourne on the site.  Funny, tragic or just a bit of information it doesn’t matter.  Just go to the Memories page and send your contribution.  Remember ladies, if you can let us know your Maiden name as well this will help old Rodbournites to remember you.

Our programme of talks for 2018 is on the Events page

RCHG will only use this personal information you supply to us to maintain our Archive and keep you informed of events. We will only hold your information for as long as necessary to fulfil that purpose. We will not pass your personal information to any other parties unless you give us specific permission to do so.

To celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex the Even Swindon Working Men’s Club better known as the Percy Street Club organized a street party for the locals. The weather was brilliant and the people attending agreed for me to post photos of the families attending. A big thank your for allowing me to post them on our website and Facebook page. Please feel free to comment, critisize or give me information on your names. We are desperate for new and old families to donate family photos into our Archive so if you are happy to do that please contact me at and I’ll take you through the process that would be great. If you live in Rodbourne(between the bridges) and you are willing to let us scan your deeds that would be brilliant as this gives a complete history of your house through the ages. Please follow the link below too our Facebook page to see the photos.

RCHG is proud to support
