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 2015 is now posted on the Events page

New book published by members

Two of  our members have published a book about Swindon Works and although the proceeds will not go to the group we felt we must publicize it any way.


Well it seems there might have been gremlins at work on our facebook page or we pricked someone’s conscience as rather than forcing me to take out a Business Account our page has reverted to allowing me to sign in as usual to manage the page. I hope this wasn’t too much of  a distraction for you. and that your comments will keep coming in as we value them.  Secretary
