After Eton College was completed in 1440, a hamlet of houses was built west to the college grounds to house shoemakers, tailors, and other professions who worked at the college. It was separated from Eton itself by land owned by the college and was known as The Wick. Nearby is Dorney Common and Dorney Lake, which hosted the rowing for the 2012 Olympics.
This charming village keeps growing in popularity for discerning homebuyers, and offers a wide variety of property.
The village offers easy vehicular access to the M4 & A4 with a regular daily bus service running.
There is only one school in the village which is Eton Wick C of E First School.
Life in Eton Wick
Eton Wick has a selection of local shops which form a small parade in the centre of the village with larger superstores a short drive towards the A4 or back into Windsor. There is a real community feel here with a well-used small library, a Parish magazine, a village football club and a variety of social activities for residents.
